Gozzie launches Maclord’s Blog

Maclord's blog

Yet another blog featuring tips and tricks about Macs, OS X, and cross-platform working and the iPhone. Sounds like another “me, too” blog, right?

Feel free to post comments here for any suggestions – topics and subjects, for example, that you wish to be covered on the blog.
