comment Apache couldn't be started because port 8888 is in use by some other software
It sounds like your version of netstat has a different "-p" option than the one I'm used to. I presume MacOS X? The goal of the command is to find the actual program binding to port 8888, which prevents Apache from also binding to that port, because the error means "something else already uses port 8888." That "something else" might be another copy of Apache, for all I know -- you have to investigate that using system administration methods.

First, you open a root shell on your server. Then you type the command line "netstat -napl | grep 8888" This will show you the name and process ID of the process that is using that port number.

comment Photo Organizer that works from many computers to one file server
Thanks for the suggestion. PicasaStarter may in fact work for my use case. I was just hoping that someone had actually solved this problem for real. For example, Quicken, and Mint, and similar checkbook systems don't do multi-user -- but clearcheckbook does. I'm looking for the clearcheckbook of offline photo organizing software, if that makes sense...

@sink818: In the original text, I called out twice that the metadata should live on the network. Apparently, that was not enough -- I edited the question to make it clear this is a requirement. Thanks for your contribution!

But with Picasa, the database is stored on the local drive, not the network. Or is there some store-the-database-on-the-network setting that I don't know about?

comment What causes average response time into the seconds for an SSD?
As I said above, I don't think that this is a software problem. Assuming I/O queuing is roughly FIFO, what would enqueue 90,000 requests in parallel? It's more likely to me that this is a system-software/driver or hardware failure of some sort.

comment What causes average response time into the seconds for an SSD?
This doesn't answer the question: If a task had to wait 9 seconds between issuing some I/O, and the disk can do 10,000 I/O requests per second, that means there are 90,000 other I/O requests ahead of this one. It seems unlikely that software would be written to have that request rate, because that wouldn't work at all on spinny disks. So, perhaps there's something wrong with the SSD, or the system, that causes artificial request rates or artificial latency? The main user of I/O is likely the background backup tool I use (CrashPlan.) But that shouldn't block all other I/O.

comment Applications like Chrome look blurry in windows 8.1
This is not new in Windows 8.1 -- display scaling has been with us since at least Vista. And a Surface and similar device really needs scaling, which worked just fine on 8.0. I think there must be more to this story, because 125% scaling in 8.0 was fine (and necessary); 8.1 is all fuzzy.

comment How can I set up a proxy for HTTP POST requests?
I really don't want to roll my own if I can avoid it. It seems WebSphere and WebLogic have these kinds of proxies as part of their SoA enterprise suites, so it seems like it can be done -- just not on a budget or technology stack I'm comfortable with :-)
