    I want to hack arround some thing on MU. I have windows + APM installed I can run wordpress etc from that using 127.0.0.1 or localhost.
    Now I want to test WPMU with subdomain option, but I cant figure out how to do that. I cannot give some thing like foo.127.0.0.1 becuae that would not resolve.
    So I put something like
    127.0.0.1 foo.tld
    in my hosts file and it foo.tld resolves correctly. But when I try to change my hosts file to
    127.0.0.1 *.foo.tld
    something.foo.tld does not resolve.
    So how can I work with wild card subdomains on windows?
