comment Connect to localhost from another computer
I'm running out of ideas, but I think the situation is clearer now. Maybe this question would be answered better on ServerFault? I wonder if it could be flagged, and migrated to SF by a moderator?

comment Connect to localhost from another computer
From another computer localhost1 refers to the other computer. You would need to connect to 192.168.1.1:8000 from the other computer (the phone). You probably know that, but I'm just trying to make it clear. BTW 192.168.1.1 sounds like the ADSL2+ modem I use, and the various computers in my LAN have IP addresses like 192.168.1.x where x>1

Does the phone browser support port numbers like :8000? Can you actually see something at 192.168.1.1:8000 with a browser on the Mac?

comment What exactly is a binary file? Is a JPEG file (.jpeg) a binary file?
The JPEG format is a specification for encoding images as a series of bytes which don't tend to make sense when viewed with Notepad (or any text editor), as @jglouie said.

comment How can I dim my computer screen beyond the minimum?
Can you still buy filters for screens? They were around in the old CRT days. I suppose sunglasses would make it difficult to see the keys at night.

comment Windows Phone 7 - How to download SMS (text) messages to disk
I wouldn't want to second-guess a moderator's reasons -- but your question asked about exporting text messages from the phone. It sounds like a cell phone question.

comment Does muting computer sound improves performance in any way?
I think 'muting' really means reducing the volume to zero, but the files are still loaded.
