    I've gotta give this a big ol' ??



    They've rolled their own webserver?



    Do you have any idea how badly it'll thrash the HD in your iPod if it gets many hits??

    I'm (only slightly) disappointed: I was expecting the web server to be running on the iPod.

    Me too. \



    Oh well.



    It's still a stupid idea though, that HD wouldn't last more than a week setup as a server, even if it was just local.

    Naw, you need a Newton for that.



    Seriously.



    There's a web server for the Newton.

    Apache can run on the iPod using iPod Linux. You'd need to have some kind of ethernet to firewire bridge set up though.

    when i go to show my portfolio of sites to prospective clients, i could take them running on my ipod and just plug-in...

    Wouldn't it be easier to take an ibook or Powerbook with you...

    i do that now with my PB, which is fine. i can run the sites locally from there.



    but sometimes i'm not only showing online work but print work, which means a portfolio too.



    all i'm saying is that it would be handy to be able to have the sites i want to show on an ipod, and just serve them from there.



    handy, not essential
