Mac OS X Server, Apple, A Truce Please?

Well…one look at the “Safari cannot connect to localhost because your computer is connected to the internet” message I received yesterday while trying to view my web site while on the train and I about lost it. After I hacked the apache conf, that was enough for me to put up the white flag when […]

Little Tech Reminders
