BEN! in regards to AOLServer, you could setup filters to handle access to bugzilla. I don't know if you need it to work exactly the same way as a .htaccess, which it doesn't, but it may work well enough for you.

I moved my website over to pghoster.com so I can finally control everything myself. For $10/mo, it's a damn good deal. I get access to both MySQL and PostrgeSQL databases, neat. Now all I need to do is create a website. I think it's time to scrap the old one since it's been about two years since I touched it last. *sigh*

In other news, I've discovered a new toy I want: a SPARCStation 20 w/ quad Ross 200MHz hyperSparc cpus, a full 512MB (not very much for a server, but enough to play with) and a decent disk. I used to have a sparc 20 when I was working at Netscape and it was a nice little box. I kinda want an HP-UX box too. I think this has something to do with reading Phil's literature.

I'm beginning to think twice about using OpenACS for our new system at work. AOLServer & Tcl are still in, but OpenACS seems to be a little too much for our needs. Our current PHP-based code gets about 10 hits per second on a quicksilver g4 (db is on a dual 800 filled with ram and such). I'm not terribly happy with it. I wish there was more literature out there comparing different systems for servicing web applications and such. E.g., which hardware, OSes, configurations, software, etc. are the best for what and why. Google's definately a help, and there are a few o'reilly books that seem to be relative (Server Load Balancing and High Performance Computing) but not much else...
