Preston Gregg of Apple writes to tell us that the new Apple Web server we mentioned last week in TidBITS-243 isn't official yet, and as such may go up and down a bit over the next week or so. They're busy moving the server to its own T-1 line, which will make for plenty of throughput. Also, it turns out that the Bug Reporting area is only for bugs or feedback with the Web server, NOT for general bugs with the Mac or any Mac software. Sigh. [ACE]
