stupid chmodding had me on a wild goose chase, but now I've truly found a proper reason to love os x

i know you can do this on windows, but it's a million times more complicated and error-prone

i now have a full testing environment for working on web-stuff on my powerbook (including php and perl working), no more edit one line of code, upload, wait, refresh browser. Now i just save. When everything is working right, THEN I can upload to thee live internets, instead of with every little change (breaking a live website in the process)

i know this post made no sense to anyone, but it rocks anyway.

extra random note: I think it's so neat (and possibly silly) that unix's old grounding in being used over phone lines via teletype machines means a lot of its terminology is derived from the olden days . . . to tell programs to re-load, you send a "SIGHUP" which is short for Signalling a Hangup, as in hanging up a modem on a phone line. By telling the program to hang up, or that you the user are hanging up, it re-loads itself. wacky.
