What's there to talk about? It's funny to learn, you are never out of resources (disc space), you can upgrade whenever you want and you even redirect a domain name to it. One major downside is still security. You need a good firewall, else you'll be flooded and your connection blocked etc. This has happened to me several times and luckily the manufacturer of my router brought out a new firmware with upgrades to the hardware firewall. That has saved me many times.

Fun OS X Feature: To get apache up and running, all you need to do is tick a box. no arsing about with configs ;)

glaanie's right though, setup a good firewall, don't want outside connections to it (or do you? o_0)

wow, its the loopback interface.

127.0.0.1 was origionally created to test the loopback interface, after that people decided that binding local services was a good idea, and that is how the name localhost, or localhost.localdomain came about.

I see three different forums running on three different forum platforms.

Ep, glad to see you come back and tidy up...did want to ask a one day favor, I want to enhance my resume , was hoping you could make me administrator for a day, if so, take me right off since I won't be here to do anything, and don't know the slightest about the board, but it would be nice putting "served administrator osnn", if can do, THANKS

Been running around Quora lately, luv it there https://tinyurl.com/ycpxl
