I have been a Mac user for quite a few years now. It was surprising that I had never used iChat, considering how often I am talking to friends online all over the world.

Reviewing Take Control of Messages in Mountain Lion gave me the chance to delve a little deeper into Messages.

The Wireless Networking Starter Kit
Book Review

On January 7, 2003, in Book Review, by David Weeks

The Wireless Networking Starter Kit
Adam Engst and Glenn Fleishman

Peachpit Press
ISBN 0-321-17408-9
US $29.95
CA $46.95
302 pages not including index

The Wireless Networking Starter Kit is subtitled the practical guide to W-Fi networks for Windows and Macintosh, and this book by veteran writers Adam Engst and Glenn Fleishman is a complete success. It is full of real world “how to” information on how to understand, design, configure, troubleshoot, and use, a wireless network.

Engst penned the enormously successful Internet Starter Kit, and publishes the very popular TidBITS newsletter. Glenn Fleishman has co-written Real World Adobe GoLive, and has written for the New York Times. Their respective resumes set high expectations, and The Wireless Networking Starter Kit meets them all.
