[typo] How to I set Typo's Blog URL to be relative?

Thanks for your response -- but wouldn't that work only if I'm  
accessing the hostname from the server itself? In my case, I don't  
actually use the server for anything except, well, serving. So I need  
to be able to do something like this for all the computers in the  
house. Is this possible?
