Haha. :-)

Localtunnel and PageKite overlap, but the focus of the two projects is actually very different. Localtunnel is just for quick one-off tests. Although PageKite can do that as well, our (I am the author) real goal was to make self-hosting easy for folks who don't necessarily have full control over their networking infrastructure or are using primarily mobile devices.

The two projects started at roughly the same time though, in fact I think localtunnel predates PageKite by a few months.

I was just trying to give pagekite love. I like it quite a bit :)
