Happy Birthday to Me

Special Birthday Candle for 40th Birthday

There were a few too many candles on my birthday pie today — Citizen Arcane doesn't like cake — and things got a wee bit out of hand. We'll return you to your regularly scheduled blog tomorrow.

Another political statement from someone who clearly remembers Sigmund the Sea Monster. It isn't easy, smoking green.

Some Days I Really Hate Apache

The great thing about mod_rewrite is it gives you all the configurability and flexibility of Sendmail. The downside to mod_rewrite is that it gives you all the configurability and flexibility of Sendmail.

Brian Behlendorf, Apache Group

Instead of creating an entry for today, I spent it wrestling with Apache's URL rewrite rules. The documentation says, "Welcome to mod_rewrite, the Swiss Army Knife of URL manipulation!" but knives aren't useful if they keep amputating body parts of the user. Anyway, the results of a days work are, as they say, mixed. Archives sort of work, but only if the path includes index.php. This isn't especially interesting, but it's why there isn't an entry for today.

Despite the tons of examples and docs, mod_rewrite is voodoo. Damned cool voodoo, but still voodoo.
