Hi listees,

I've got a small problem, which so far I've been unable to solve.

I'm looking for a small lightweight web server for my mac (powerbook 
G3 / MacOS 9) so I can do site testing while I'm on the road.

Ideally I'm looking for something along the lines of OmniHTTPd, it 
only really needs to do CGI (Perl, possibly PHP) and SSI, nothing 

I've had a look through the evolt archives but couldn't find anything 
suitable, and searching on the web just gets me lots of links to 
Webstar, which seems like overkill for my purposes.

Does such a beast exist?



<tip type="Photoshop filters" author="Garrett Coakley">

When Photoshop starts up, it scans through it's plugins directory and 
initializes all the plugins it finds. With a lot of filters this can 
take quite a while. However, you can get it to ignore specific plugin 
directories by putting a tilde (~) in front of the directory name.

i.e.: renaming "digimarc" to "~digimarc"

This is comes in especially handy if you have no need for filters 
such as (in the example above) the Digimarc plugin, which activates 
everytime you open an image.
