A colon killed my ASP.NET, Visual Studio 2008 webserver. How you ask? Here's how.
So apparently, an update changed one text file, which needed only ONE more colon, and that inhibited me from being able to view my ASP.NET server.
This means that after hours of pulling my hair out adding ports and removing them from my firewall, and configuring exceptions in my router, uninstalling and reinstalling browsers, changing options in VS2008, it came down to the fact that someone forgot to add a colon.
Ouch! It's times like these that I wonder why computers are so great. It's going to take a few hours of Mass Effect to make me remember....
