Serving the Web Out of my Kitchen

On a completely different topic, I’ve recently set up a web server at home. Three great tools helped make this happen.

The first would be my Linksys Wireless G router. This router offers a Dynamic DNS utility that keeps my ever-changing home IP address working.

The second tool would be The Saint TSW, a WAMP package that made it real easy to get up and running. It includes Apache, PHP, mySQL, and mail and FTP servers.

The last great tool is TightVNC, a virtual networking client. This tool gives me the ability to manage my computer remotely.

Though I haven’t played with it much yet, Mambo might beet them all as my favorite. A CMS, this open-source app might change the way I build websites.
