Test System and possibly local install (4 posts)

    I know a lot of you Studs and Studettes out there write your own themes and plugins. Do you all throw caution tothe wind and just write them and run them or do you maintain a second install to bang around in?
    Also, not being the most technically savvy person here, would it be possible to maintain a local installation of WordPress. Meaning, could I put wordpress on my E: drive? I assume I would have to figure out how to set up a DB on that drive for it to draw from and load it with some test data but that shouldn't be hard...famous last words.
    I'm hypothesizing (is that a word) here so don't kill yourselves figuring out the details, just casting my net for opinions.

    Thanks

    Thanks for the quick response. Much appreciated.

    Studs and Studettes, dunno, I guess I'm just weird. Kinda meant as a compliment. Meant as flattery, I consider a lot of the folks her very intelligent and cool.
