comment 'localhost' stoped working as an alias for '127.0.0.1' for SSHing into my VirtualBox VM from OSX. Why, and how to fix?
Want to post the same answer over at Ask Different? I had posted there originally. I flagged it after you answered and they say it can be answered there too...if not I'll just source this answer and give you credit.

nano was good enough to edit...ended up doing it in sudo rather than changing permissions to be able to edit the file. Thanks for this. Looks like I'm missing some other hosts as well!

@GordonDavisson Yeah, for some reason etc/hosts was empty! That was the problem. Feel free to post as an answer if you'd like, otherwise I'll do it. Thanks for your help!

"To be honest, you don't really need one" - 3.5 years later, is this still a true statement? Just curious :)

comment How to create a form in Word that functions on screen and in print?
@Adam Well, that's the thing. I don't want to restrict the number of characters. I want it to be able to flow into multiple lines without any other formatting on the page being altered.

comment How to get a more detailed view of web browser http process?
@JulianKnight I'm registered there as well; I figured a question about HTTP connections wasn't WordPress-specific enough.

Oh, cool! I see Firebug has a similar feature, now that I'm looking for it. Thanks! I think I'm going to need server logs to troubleshoot better, though...I'm trying to figure out if the problem is with the database but I don't think my browser is going to be able to tell me that.
