Kindle 3 lightweight web server for local browsing?
I'm new (and I'm not much of a programmer), but a quick search of the forum didn't answer my question.
I'd really like to be able to access local files through the web browser, but local access seems to be blocked. So I thought that instead of getting the browser to look at local files, why not try to fool the Kindle into thinking that they were 'online'.
To that end I ask: How hard would it be to implement a lightweight web server to run in the background on the Kindle? Could we then access files via http://127.0.0.1/myHtmlFile?

However, note that the browser refuses to run if it cannot turn the wireless/3g on, so you might be out of luck even with a local webserver. There is probably a way (through entries in the filesystem, or perhaps messages on dbus) to make the browser think that the network is on, but I have not investigated the issue yet.
