Yeah. 0.0.0.0 is the wildcard address: the server will be listening on 
all the available addresses (127.0.0.1 and also any LAN address).

Wen-Ruey may simply be missing that it is just running a web server. To 
actually see anything she/he needs to hit it with a web browser, for 
example with a URL like:

  http://127.0.0.1:8000/
