Here’s a small virtual-y kind of software you can run to simulate a web-server locally.  I’m trying to get this one to run proper-like, as I had an issue with a website composed of server-side includes which wouldn’t recompile when saved down form a live server space.  Here’s a potential solution, said one colleague.  Well, I’m giving it a try.  The name refers to the small file size.  It’s small enough to run on a micro-stick, errr…on a key-drive/jump-drive/stick-drive.  Can you drive a stick?
