I'm just a simple IT guy, who does a bit of programming on the side.

Check dmesg, the debug log, and any application logs for the httpd service.

comment issue setting up home server
Suggestions: Nobody hosts websites on OSX (Apple.com is run on Linux). Use Windows/IIS or *nix/Apache/nginx/etc. Run the "server" in a VM using VirtualBox or similar. There are guides around to walk you through the process. Check out Super User, Unix & Linux, and Ask Different for more help too. As for the "problem", your router almost certainly can't hairpin NAT. Also, hosting websites on a MBA is a terrible idea and a good way to get a virus.

comment External drive shared between Windows Server and Mac OSX
"large" is pretty meaningless - I've heard people refer to 100MB files as large. Excuse the brainfart, I meant to recommend exFAT, which is really just FAT32 with some minor tweaks, including support for exabyte files.

comment Does an ISP have admin access to your modem/router?
ADSL uses OFDM modulation, but I wouldn't consider that Analog... unless you also consider WiFi, Cellphones, and Bluetooth to be "analog" too.

Comcast doesn't allow CMs they can't control. Even customer owned equipment is managed by them. I couldn't say definitively for other ISPs, but I'm sure it's common practice.

DSL is digital, that's what the "D" stands for. Every system I've seen is based in SNMP or TR-069.

comment Accidentally formatted hard drive when installing Ubuntu 12.04
Data Recovery companies can't recover overwritten data from modern hard drives. What wasn't overwritten might be salvageable, but it's probably not much at this point.

Is there a good reason you're trying a web browser instead of ping to diagnose connectivity issues??

comment No video signal at boot with custom built computer
@PetterH There's no 9v power in a modern PC. Perhaps you mean the 12v EATX connector?

Try the DVI->VGA adapter on the 7870, see if that works.

comment Can I enlarge OS C: drive of my Windows 8 PC?
Windows Disk Management can do this if there is disk space available. I highly recommend against using anything with "Norton" branding. Even if you had to reformat (which you don't) the tools (dism) in Windows setup would allow you to image the drive and write the image to the reformatted drive.

Failing that, right click the "Ethernet Controller" in Device Manager, select Update Driver, Browse, find the drivers you downloaded, and follow the rest of the wizard.
