Hey Terra, how's the Apache update coming? Is it online now? Impressions?

Apache 1.3.4 is coming along well...
I have it up on a private server and testing different mixes of hacks/modules[DSO|static], looking for a well-balanced blend...
Much thought and design is going into *these* new engines, as I am working on a massive core infrastructure redesign... FutureQuest is outgrowing it's previous core and it's time to invoke my dormant hooks for multi-server scalability...
I am in Zen mode at the moment, watching every little intricite piece of server operation and designing so that we don't outgrow this for at least 6-9 months...
It takes much time and patience to build flexible servers while still providing powerful capabilites -- finding the right blend is an artform indeed...

Man, this stuff is interesting. When I replace this box, I'm throwing Redhat Linux on this one, just to play around. I'm so stuck in Micro$oft's closed/encryped/sealed source that open source is a concept that's hard to comprehend. I am still trying to imagine recompiling the kernel to tweak it out and make it do what I need it to do. Cool http://www.aota.net/ubb/smile.gif
Of course, I need to learn more assembler first, but that will come in time. It just sounds like a whole different world. Even the format for WinHelp is encrypted, and they won't give out any info on it. You have to use their compiler. It's free, but still. It's pathetic. And as far as I know, there is no third party help compiler at all. There's help designers (I have four of them) that make the project files, and all of them require MS's compiler.
I'm stopping now before I get carried away. My 486 SX-33 won't do justice. I have a laptop 486 SX-33 also, but I think I'll wait until I replace this old 233 with something better (dual 600's?).
