Heads up, Mac folks— if you're developing web software, remember to test it on a case-sensitive drive!

Last night I spent a couple hours chasing ghosts, because my Drivey demo didn't load once I uploaded it. It was all because my Mac ignored case in mistyped URLs that broke on the real server.

@neauoire we just frigign' talked about this! 😆 Maybe I should take a page from your playbook and write a command that copies a target folder to a case sensitive disk image, and hosts a server from that.
