I like this. I'm also waiting for the richer (geekier :) content, but this seems like a great introduction for everyone. My dad could be serving web pages with this - which is the Promise, right? Great job!

2 humble suggestions -
My dad will get hung up on the new OS X specific "/Library/directory/folder/" thing. You may want to walk people more slowly through the first time you use this.
And, please cover folder-specific password access. Please!

    Hey sssss (ever see that snake horror flick? oh, nevermind <G>)...

    Anyways, the "/Library/directory/folder/" has been in Macs for a while actually - just using a different delimiter. Were I talking in Classic/OS 7-9 lingo, this would be "Mac HD:Users:morbus:Library:directory:folder". In some geekier Classic/OS 7-9 cases, you'd actually use this - if you were coding in MacPerl, for instance, or using a Unix ported utility like cron <URL: http://gargravarr.cc.utexas.edu/cron/>. Describing it was out of the scope of this article (as is how to use the Terminal, which we start using in part 2). I've been told that O'ReillyNet is publishing an Intro to the Terminal though, so there should be no problems there.

    As for the password auth access, I'll try to squeeze it in once we get into that area of our journey.

    Thanks for the comments.
