If Not This Then Stringify

I love IFTTT (If This Then That), but although it usually works well, it's more and more common for triggers to fail. Sometimes they don't fail, but take several minutes to activate.

Integrating Web Applications with Apache

When you deploy a web application, how do end users access it? Often web applications are set behind a gateway device through which end users can access it.
