It's not too hard to set up your own environment with FoxServ (Apache + PHP + MySQL, Perl, etc.), http://www.tripod.co.uk is one, however the variant of PHP they use is cut down, which means some functions are shorted out as well
Should still work for simple home-brewed scripting though.
Windows Schmidows....hahahhahaha. I think i'll just have to get my linux cds back and load up Apache, PHP, MYSql and all the other fun stuff. See what I could learn.
The reason I don't want to host it on my local machine, I'm on ATT Cable service, and my upload (client download) sucks! So it would run realllllllllllllllllly slow. Plus it's a slow machine PIIMMX 333MHZ.
