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.

comment How to get a more detailed view of web browser http process?
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.

comment Excel fonts: Embedding or fallback options?
Super cool! That might be overkill for this project but it's neat to know that option exists. Thanks for the default font info and your other help!

comment Excel fonts: Embedding or fallback options?
We just updated from '03 in our office, so I'm a little nervous about where other offices might be :) Was looking for market share data but wasn't able to find anything. Do you know anything about fallback fonts? I guess that if the font isn't found, it would just go to the user's set default?

comment Excel's date format without a year
So glad I learned about the numbers...I just tried to map this to an XML and it converted all of the dates to numbers and it didn't faze me!

comment Excel's date format without a year
I did that, and like I said it looks fine in the cell. But when you click on the cell and look up top, it shows day, month, and year. Why is that being added and what do I do about it?
