    I think you'll have to find or purchase web server software, making your PC
    a web server with Apache, Perl, PHP, MySQL, etc. loaded and running on
    your PC ... essentially making it a self-contained webhost.

    Rather advanced stuff, but it would work.

    resistance is...

    MVC is the current buzz in web application architectures. It comes from event-driven desktop application design and doesn't fit into web application design very well. But luckily nobody really knows what MVC means, so we can call our presentation layer separation mechanism MVC and move on. (Rasmus Lerdorf)
