Apache 2.0 is GA... cool... lots of weird bug reports and a few really good ones (weird being funky user errors or system setup problems, good being a real bug that can be fixed)...

I'm playing with the iMac that "brown" brought today. It is a beautiful machine, and I'll be pleased as punch if I can get Apache to build on the first try (supposedly just a matter of patching the right Apple-provided libtool file). Apache is building in the background, I'm listening to "Lady Madonna", and ripping Kind of Blue. Of course I could do the same stuff on all those other operating systems, but it is nice to see something just work out of the box for a change. After playing with it for a few minutes this afternoon Sonya (my daughter) and I wanted to immediately order a couple more. This one is destined for my wife's desk upstairs and of course Sonya and I both "need" an iMac of our own. But maybe Sonya has changed her mind by now, because some software of hers was misbehaving under Classic. Oh, well. And I don't think I can print to the Epson C60 via lpr unless I pretend it is PostScript and set up GhostScript on the Linux box. Yuck. Lots of things to resolve.
