  1. So in between my busy life, I've been wanting for years t be able to have an "offline" site that I can use for tests before uploading it. Recently this has become somewhat of a necessity, I have to say your video was really informative (even though the entire process took me three days between other ongoing projects) and did exactly what I hoped it would do. So, huge thank you 🙂
