(1) Go to Google.

(2) Type: tex mac os x

(3) Click on "I'm Feeling Lucky".

It takes you to the place it should (in my humble opinion). We simply 
need to make that page the best it can be. The benefit of using our 
(Joe Slater and me) page is that we don't have to pay for a domain name 
and we don't have to pay for hosting.

I should also mention that we are willing to host anything Mac OS X TeX 
related on that machine. We have tons of disk space and bandwidth 
(heck, PSU is an Internet 2 site).

All the best,
