MAMP for instant Apache / mySQL / PHP

I know for most of you this lies outside your ambit, but should you ever wish to install Apache, mySQL, PHP (with full collection of reasonable modules for Apache, PHPmySQLAdmin, system prefs control of daemons, dashboard widget, etc etc) definitely use MAMP:

It's not for production use, but neither should a mac be; for local development it's just done right. It took me about an hour from start to finish to get MAMP installed, configured, and the 40 MB Baseball Databank loaded in (and almost all of that was the BDB).

if you aren't reading TUAW, you suck!

Man I really love the Unofficial Apple Weblog, lots of great new applications on there as well as interesting talk surrounding iPhone hacking. Awesome.

Mailplane FTW

Mailplane -- OSX interface to GMail, incl. chat and multiple-logins (ish). I got my beta request turned around in a day or two.
