    Very helpful article that explains how to reboot 14.04 into single user mode even if it asks for a password. Trick is to add `init=/bin/bash` to the kernel line in grub. Booya.

  10. https://pagekite.net/
    Paid localhost tunnelling option. Has some kind of free option I think, but also has paid plans. Probably pretty slick, haven't tried it.
  11. https://ngrok.com/
    Pretty slick looking tunnels to localhost, seems to log the requests so they can be replayed, etc. More feature rich than localtunnel, but requires some weird install / download, has a paid version, and probably isn't open source.
  12. http://localtunnel.me/
    Genius. Npm install it `npm install -g localtunnel` then run `lt --port 8080` and it spits out an HTTPS url which will forward to localhost:8080. Free and incredibly useful.
