Windows 7 XAMPP - Can't start apache

I have xampp installed on windows 7 but I've never been able to get apache working. When I press the netstat button it shows nothing running on port 80, the logs are completely empty and I don't see anything in the windows event viewer (although I can't seem to get it to show all events by date which it used to do by default, so I could be missing something) [more inside]

I need some new shows to binge or get into :)

Hi there! I am trying to find three new shows to get into. My favorite shows was Grey's Anatomy- although the writing is not so great anymore. I really like Nasheville, Big Bang, Downton Abbey and Modern Family. I just got into Proof and The Good Wife. I have tried Scandal but just can't get into it. OITNB is too depressing for me. Any ideas? Any new shows I should try. thanks!!

What are some of the known longest-uptime *nix installs in the world?

Someone mentioned that netcraft used to have an updated ranking, but no longer does. I imagine this would mean no kernel updates or anything for many years too, so I guess it would be a pretty un-secure machine.

Hosted Minecraft PE solutions

A friend of mine is looking to use Minecraft PE with a group of 20 kids who will be playing on iPads. They're looking for an opinion on what the best way to host a server will be. They want a persistent server that will be available around the clock, they will not be playing with mods, and they'd like it to be as maintenance free as possible. What are good, reliable, and scam free hosting solutions for mobile Minecraft? [more inside]

OK, What's the Scam Here?

At work I've been getting 2-3 calls per week for the last few months that all follow the same pattern - someone wants to send me a free white paper about something and just needs to verify my information. They are clearly some kind of marketing ploy but I can't figure out what the purpose is. [more inside]

coding partner or starting over better?

I am in the UK and learning HTML/CSS/JavaScript & InDesign through The InDesign comes naturally to me, the coding not so much. The trouble is it's very difficult to get feedback and damn near impossible to find a coding partner. I do not have time to do more than three hours of training everyday and can't take time off. Is there a language/framework/training that would be more progressive to the lone learner?

Should I upgrade from Mac OS 10.7.5 to OS 8 or further up: 9 or 10.10.3?

I need to upgrade from Mac OS 10.7.5 to OS 8 to use a tool for work. Should I just go ahead and upgrade to OS 10.10.3? I ask because the 10.7.5 works just fine and I'm inclined to leave well enough alone unless as now when I need a later version for work. Is the upgrade (to whatever version) buggy, complicated, worth it? Thanks. [more inside]
