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
Purple Punk Productions.
