comment Apache: a better way to proxy traffic on many different ports to the same ports on another server
Like I said, I can generate the config programmatically (and I am actually doing so with a Puppet template). I'm just wondering if there's a simpler solution.

comment Apache: a better way to proxy traffic on many different ports to the same ports on another server
The Listens were one line each, vs. at least 4 lines for the VirtualHost sections. I was looking for a one-liner like RewriteRule (.*) http://otherserver.com:%{REQUEST_PORT}$1 or similar (but one that actually works :) If it's really not possible to do this in significantly fewer lines, then type that up as an answer and I'll accept it after I've given up hope of better answers :)

comment Why does apache return a 404 response for a file that exists?
I think this question turned out to be more appropriate for StackOverflow.com. If anyone powerful enough to move/migrate this question over to there agrees with me, please do so.

comment Recovering from a Time Machine backup encrypted with PGP Whole Disk Encryption
Actually, now that I think about it, I'm a bit concerned that this technique won't get "everything" from the Time Machine backup (e.g., stuff under /usr/local)

That's a great idea. I'm still waiting for an answer from someone who has actually done it, however. But you still get my up-vote.
