      Lightbulb Mac section?

      Hi all,
      just wondering if there was interest enough or scope enough for having a Mac users section for this forum?

      I'm a regular luker / sometime poster now. I say Sometime as I don't really have any major problems with Sky's service, getting some decent speeds (decent compared to F2S for sure) and generally stable connections.

      However, as a Mac user if there were any others here who also used Macs and had issues or suggestions to squeezing a bit more out as far as download speeds goes, they're the posts I dip into first.

      I've gone from using Sky's own router to a previous wirless router now to a wired one pumping out via a gateway (pause for breath) but am always on the look out for other suggestions.

      Having an Intel iMac I'm keen to find out how others configure they're set ups too. Do people hook up via Windows and use it that way or other?

      Have to say that this site is great and is a daily stop for me, however, knowing that there were other Mac users here with a section set aside would be ideal! (admittedly if not a tad selfish....)

      Any thoughts?

      Maybe under the main "Sky Broadband discussion" section?

      "Mac Users Tips & Hints" ?

      Dunno really...
