How to turn your Mac into a dynamic, database-driven web server


In preparation for this presentation, I've done a fresh install of Mac OS X Tiger on an external drive and patched it up to the latest version. I've also installed a few programs that I use in web development and server configuration, including (but not limited to):

Can it get easier than this?

The quickest way to enable the web server on your Mac is by going to System Preferences>Sharing, and then ticking the Personal Web Sharing tick box, as shown below:

Unilever provides post-Einsteinian technological junk food to the western world

The Combermere Arms (see link ) has once again landed itself on the world stage by exposing a multi-national conglomerate's unleashing of snack food products manufactured with unspecified quantum mechanical processes.

Evidence of Unilever's technological breakthrough are visible in the small print of both the Red Peperami packaging and the Green Peperami packaging. The process was first spotted by the landlord of The Combermere Arms, Gavin Craig, who noticed that the Green Peperami packaging stated there was 108% pork in the Green Peperami, whereas the Red Peperami packaging stated that the amount of pork to produce the product was well within the Newtonian range of less than 100% of the total product. In the period that has elapsed since his discovery, Unilever have since upgraded the manufacturing process of their Red Peperami product such that it, too, exceeds 100% of the total ingredients to produce the product.

Gavin Craig was unavailable for comment, as he is jet-setting around the world (well, Spain and Ireland anyway). Representatives for Mr. Craig have disputed rumours that this trip was funded by Unilever.

Who's been a naughty boy, then?

I think I know who was having a bit of a play here:

Naughty naughty, Andrew!Click the thumbnail on the left, and a nearly full sized screenshot will appear in a new window. I think I know who did that search and the request for "wp-admin". Anyone else want to make a guess?

Here's a clue - the IP address is: for both entries!


On another note, I saw The DaVinci Code at the cinema this week. I enjoyed it! I'd class it as a movie which is better than the book. The book should be subtitled "The Greatest Story Ever Told about The Greatest Story Ever Told in the style of a Scooby Doo cartoon".

Those pesky kids!
