You sir, have an awesome and enviable talent for understatement! :)

I have a funny (funny only in retrospect) story about apache, modules,
and frontpage. In an earlier version of FreeBSD/Apache - having more
courage than knowlege - bravely installed the frontpage module and
irreperably blew up Apache forever. A complete reinstall was
(regrettably) necessary. It was a lot more painful then than
now...or...umm...perhaps I know a tad more now, than back then :).
Nonetheless, I've never gone near the frontpage module since!
(sad, since I do so like FP personally)
