The last few days, Dimitris Tsoukalos and I were creating a web site called TruthTarget.gr.
We would like to hear your opinion about the site.

Note: The site uses the Greek language.

Create a Gmail POP3 account

When creating a Gmail account using the Mail application that comes with Mac OS X 10.7 (a.k.a. Lion), it only allows you to create an IMAP account.

If you do not want that, hold the option button down until ‘Create’ turns into ‘Continue’ and you are done!

Running Lion

Earlier today, my iMac started running Lion.
It was pretty tricky to do the clean install I wanted. I had to install Snow Leopard without any apps, update to Mac OS X 10.6.8 and then upgrade to Lion.

Everything looks fine until now. I am now installing MacPorts software. The two things left are SuperDuper! and LaTeX. I also have to find which version of MySQL I will install as Lion does not come with MySQL.
