Short and sweet indeed. Thanks for sharing. I find the mention of the hosts file interesting, I've always stayed away from it but I guess I'm ready to give it a shot now :D
I like using the hosts file for development. Especially when building new WordPress sites. I can point a domain at the new site even before DNS propagates and get started on development right away.
