In the process of getting ongoing staged, a certain amount of server twiddling was called for. This process has further deepened my already-profound respect for the Apache Web server.

You want resources with no .html on the end served as HTML? No problem. You want everything to go out as UTF-8? Go to apache.org two clicks, one search, and there's the AddDefaultCharset directive, just what you're looking for.

People who rave about the Macintosh frequently are prone to going on about how things "just work". That's Apache for you.

At work, our product runtime is implemented as an Apache module; it's a really pretty nice programming environment, if you don't mind having to program in C.
