Hey, you think we could get Frank to come eat our lawn pretty soon? It's getting mad long since we lost the high-tech lawnmower.
i have not got a clue to what you are referring to... i have "me" and a cable modem. what host files are there to edit?
or maybe i just wont bother....
i want to be cool! what's the ip?
Hmmm. Do I detect the acrid stench of eliteism here?
I was being sarcastic, even though I suppose it didn't really show well enough. The people that have access are actually testing things for me.
Nu? And I wasn't? I was being sarcastic when your FATHER was still wearing three-cornered pants.

Stupid transparent caching proxy server. Now I can only talk HTTP/1.0 to the server!
(Since the transparent proxy is HTTP/1.1 compliant, it resolves the Host: header to determine what to connect to rather than just blindly accepting the IP I was connecting to... and obviously therefore I can't just make stuff up. The only way around it is to force a HTTP/1.0 request and omit the Host: header, which I've had to do so I can use OpenNIC's domains already.)
ummmmm. do you have to use that caching proxy server?

I have two choices... I either connect on port 80 and my stuff gets forwarded on to my ISP's NetCache appliance 'transparently', or I connect to a different proxy server on a port other than 80 and bypass the transparent proxy server, and then can't even do the HTTP/1.0 trick.
So yes, I do need to use the proxy, as annoying as it is.
Neat concept, though.
Nyah nyah, my test server has more users than yours... :-P
do you development on the same machine the people in your company hit?
or do you have two?
Hmmmm... yeah, I guess it's not exactly a test server anymore. Oh well. :-)
I'll probably set up a second one soon, once the level of usage on the first gets to the point that it actually matters when it's down for more than a few minutes.
