I was having some weird compile errors while trying to use node.js or io.js.
Node.js or io.js will sometimes require a C++ compiler to build packages for you. On Microsoft Windows you can use Visual Studio. The newer free Visual Studio Community or the older (and also free) Visual Studio Express editions should get you going if you don't have a commercial copy of Visual Studio.
My Visual Studio 2015 install was still going after about 3+ hours on the Android SDK. It seemed like it had hung.

So you want to know why WordPress uses an absolute URL when creating a link within your own WordPress site? When WordPress stores an absolute URL in the database, it makes it harder to create test or development versions of your site. I normally solve this by making the site name point to the server I want (perhaps another article on this). Another alternative is to run some database scripts to change your site name in the database stored URLs.
