Most popular posts from 2013


This year is winding up and it's been a good year for Macminicolo. Can you believe that next year will be our tenth year of hosting Mac minis? It doesn't seem so long ago that we started this niche service of using a Mac mini as a server. It's been great. 

Before we welcome 2014, we thought we'd look back at the five most popular blog posts from 2013:

50 ways to use your server : This post lists all sorts of ways to use a Mac mini as a server. The list includes free, open-source and paid software that makes it easy to get going.

Setup a VPN server with Mavericks Server: This article is only 4 weeks old, but has become very popular from Google searches. It seems that many are trying to figure out the setup, and the little trick to make L2TP connections work.

Those are the five most popular articles this year, though the dummy dongle post from last year remains near the top overall.
