Bypass Artisan Down by IP

@koomai has a new tutorial out with tips on bypassing Laravel maintenance mode by ip address:

In Laravel, you can put the app in Maintenance Mode by running php artisan down in the console. However, this also locks you out of the app. An easy way to get around this is to do a simple check for an array of allowed IP addresses in app/start/global.php where the Maintenance Mode Handler function exists.
