Of course, any browser can do port 8080 (slaps self on forehead).
That would solve part of the problem, since I'm directing port 80
traffic to another machine. I didn't want to use a non-standard port
because the machine at the "library" wouldn't be able to do that,
don't know why I didn't think of port 8080, just stupidity I guess.
Still wouldn't work form a phone though. I'm thinking more and more
of the "send myth an email" approach somehow.
