While this isn't really Microsoft doing it, but just some outside company
doing it for them, still... the domain name looks cool.

The Microsoft Network promotion running to increase subscribership
located at is run on mod_perl.  The
contest ends at the end of the month, so check it out before then ;-)

Anyhow, the system is currently pounding nearly 10 million hits per
week to the web pages, of which about 1 million go through mod_perl.
Each of those accesses runs through on averate 3 SQL queries to a
MySQL database and 2 references to DB_File databases.

There is no way in heck it would have run without mod_perl.  By the
way, this is using Squid in accelerator mode, as I described in the
tuning docs.  Squid handles about 93% of the content (the static and
mostly static stuff).
