MobileMe Problems and HomePages

My iDisk was updated (see previous post), but Apple still seems to be having trouble with .Mac and MobileMe.

One
My ".Mac Homepage," which I currently use just to store my scores, still exists at http://homepage.mac.com/iacas/Scorecard/. Replacing "mac" with "me" in the URL doesn't work, so are these sites going to continue to exist at mac.com or are they going to move over to "iacas.me.com" or something? The answer becomes even more unclear when you realize that iWeb publishes to "web.mac.com" (see this).

Two
My calendars don't appear in the me.com site (http://www.me.com/calendar/1).

Three
My "Gallery" (I think it's empty, but who knows) never loads. It just keeps bouncing around between URLs, one of which looks like https://auth.apple.com/authenticate?service=DockStatus&realm=primary-me&returnURL=[80-character string]&destinationUrl=/gallery

Four
MobileMe? Me.com? What do we call this crap? It's only "Mobile" if it has to do with my phone, yeah?

Footnotes

  1. Apparently, the "www." and the trailing slash are required. If I type anything else, it redirects to /mail/, which is essentially the home page.

  1. As of now, my gallery (empty) works, and the calendar is working too.

    Still not sure about what may or may not happen to "homepage.mac.com."

  2. My thoughts:

    Homepages have been kind of deprecated for a while (well, in the sense that iWeb is the new hotness anyway), so it looks like they're not doing the whole homepages.me.com thing. Fortunately web.(mac|me).com is just as easy to publish to - $idisk/Web/Sites/ is what is equivelant to http://web.me.com/username/ or http://$customdomain/ - and iWeb is pretty good at leaving things alone (except index.html, which it will happily overwrite).

    The best logic I can come up with for the MobileMe name is that it makes your data mobile... across all your computers. The website just gives you access to the data itself, so is just "me.com" (also it's nice and short).

    I suppose I'll move my homepage.mac.com stuff to "web.me.com". I'll put a redirect up at the old page if it works.
