Skype is evil

Nearly everyday I am still learning new things. Today: Skype cannot only be a helpful debugging tool as I already showed but also a problem: Running skype and then a local webserver at the default port won't work: Skype already will block that port, preventing the webserver to run.

Only one comment:

Go to Tools > Options > Connection, uncheck ‘Use port 80 and 443 as alternatives for incoming connections’. Skype does this to help newbies behind proxies so there’s more chance it’ll just work.
