This year like last year, Apple is holding a special event in October, and it looks like and are one again on the menu. We're expecting the public release of, Apple's next-generation laptop and desktop operating system. We should also see the second-generation. Rumor has it we might get a new, and maybe — just maybe — the long rumored Retina versions of the. If the latter of those rumors are true, new versions of the pro apps, like Final Cut Pro, could be along for the ride, as well as updates to Numbers, Pages, Keynote, GarageBand, and iMovie as well.
Less likely, but never-say-never, speculation has included a 13-inch and revamped. Should I Buy.
We are looking to replace our current Live Chat system with something 'bigger, better, nicer'. Some of the requirements we have are: 1. Must be installable on our servers, not an outsourced or 'hosted' solution.
Linux server platform or Mac OS X Server 10.5 preferred. Windows Server 2003/2008 as last resort. Must be Mac OS X friendly - either a native OS X console app, or a web-browser based solution. Must support 10+ simultaneous operators without using 100% server CPU:-) (as many of these types of apps tend to do) 4. Price is not important, we have the budget for the right app. As a bit of background, we use PHP Live Helper and PHP Live! On our web sites, but are trying to replace them all with one more powerful and better system, preferably something that is Mac OS X friendly - though if it's a 'web based' app, as long as it plays nice it may be an option as well.

I've seen a number of decent looking apps, including Mac OS X native consoles, but they all tend to be 'hosted' solutions. For security and privacy reasons we cannot use those options. We have to have something that runs on our own servers. Suggestions or recommendations? Re: Live Chat system, Mac OS X friendly Looks interesting, but. Not quite what I had in mind. This is for offering one-to-one live chat support on our web site(s), rather than creating a community and having multiple people chatting together.
It also looks like they haven't updated this thing in a decade (OS 9 got killed in 1999 and that's the last version available), not instilling much confidence in the app's longevity. Leslie - Yup, converted the entire office, too, in the process.:-) We still have Windows XP, Windows Server 2003 and 2008 here and there, but only for very specific client needs. For general testing of sites on IE or Firefox for Windows, we just use VMware Fusion - works beautifully. We had a few staff who didn't like the idea of switching to Macs at first, but once they got shiny new iMacs or MacBook Pros, with 24' or 30' monitors, and got to play for couple hours - we haven't had anyone want to switch back to WinXP.
Re: Live Chat system, Mac OS X friendly Yeah, Hotline's been dead for a long time, almost 10 years now since the funeral. And you know what? It's still being used. It did have private chat along with a whole bunch of other goodies, including password accounts, chat logging, resumable downloads (tell me of any other app doing that 10 years ago!), fully scriptable, and just brain-dead simple to use. I still use it for private project communications to this day. The clients for Mac and PC were always free.
It's a pure shame what happened to this terrific application. There's nothing comparable for the Mac of today that I'm aware of. You're probably looking for a browser based solution that doesn't require another application for the user. Holine didn't work that way. If you find something will you please share it with us?
Re: Live Chat system, Mac OS X friendly Hi Remik - this might sound off base but my company has been considering (meaning, we're just looking - not implementing) a jabber (XMPP) based communication system between our site and our local network. I've also discovered some interesting jabber protocol hookups in OS X server on the OT - for side endeavors, particularly with iChat Server 2 and the possibilities that might be within that architecture. These might help you pursue something (I believe that this is a possibility with the OS X Server and XServe setups: (iChat Server 2 specs/details) (Using iChat protocols as a website chat server) 'JWChat + Openfire is a decent solution now. There may or may not be future things more directly related to what I'm working on, but please keep an eye on the igniterealtime blog.' - didn't 'catch' this bit until I reread it today.
(interesting program I found today) Tim Bogus. Re: Live Chat system, Mac OS X friendly Tim - hmmm, interesting approach.
We do have XServe servers available so utilizing iChat Server with some sort of web based front-end for our clients to access on our web site would be definitely an interesting solution. I'd actually like to see if that is doable - we are switching all inter-office IM systems to our own iChat Server anyway - would be nice to integrate the two together. Thanks for the links - I will definitely check them out. And if you do get it to work - shoot me an email off-list - if we don't have a solution by then maybe we'll hire you to implement the iChat Server option:-).

Re: Live Chat system, Mac OS X friendly I have an answer. Use FileMaker Pro 9 Advanced Server with it's built-in web interface.
Available for Mac or PC. Host locally or remote. A bit of custom FMP scripting (nothing serious), a little GUI work, some security setup, and you have a custom chat system that will tag the threads by subject or category and store them in a searchable database. All accessible via web browser. We can have it send an alert (audio, pop-up, email on all systems, or by telephone if served on Windows) when someone accesses the chat server. Have user accounts with logins or whatever makes sense. Unlimited incoming chats with 5 to unlimited users licenses available.

It's actually just mid-level difficulty to do, nothing tricky about it. I could probably finish it in 2 weeks for a budget under $1000. Please contact me if you'd like to discuss it.
