I would suggest skipping 15 years of internet progress and going with
a more modern framework. I recommend Pylons, although Django and
web.py are not bad.

Yes. The nature of the internet means anyone that connects can be a
client or a server or both at the same time.

Heck, you don't even need to have a connection to the internet. Just
play with 127.0.0.1, which points right back to the same machine
you're running on.

I do this all the time for developing and testing out websites or
change to websites I work on.
