 About This Site


MacMonkies was designed with the smorgasbord lover in mind. Our goal is to provide a wide variety of "goodies" for the computer enthusiast of all walks. From gobfuls of GUI, to the latest Buzz on the Net, and even a little music, it is our goal to put a generous portion on your computer plate! Top it all off with a smile and you have the recipe for MacMonkies!


MacMonkies is a fast food joint for the jungle. We're here so you can grab a quick bite and then head out to the big surf. The selections we offer are mostly the lite versions from what the rest of the net has to offer. We will touch on the news and rumors, hilite cool places to visit, report current updates, and throw a big fat banana smile your way. We will also feature nifty software and gather up some GUI stuff to spiff up your computer. Finally, we will showcase all original music and graphic design by:

Purple Punk Productions.
