| Greetings. I hate computers and especially networks but I love software 
| languages and programming. Zope is tolerable as a medium to allow me to 
| express creative language use.  Thanks for listening. :-)
| BTW, I would like to be able to test my server's connectivity from the 
| Internet. Something goofy occasionally happens with the damned 
| computer/firewall/network interface/network card, etc. etc. etc... A 
| reboot puts things back in order.

Your IP changed and your firewall didn't change its rules to match?

| So, I would like to be able to submit a request via the httplib Python 
| module and have it _not_ use the local loopback. There must be a way to 
| preface a request URL with the gateway or something but I'd have to go 
| back to school to figure it out. And I'm tired of school. It's 
| expensive and not all instructors are worth their class time.

Is there a question in there, or just a statement about things you like
and don't like?
