Subject Re: half of the top 25 web sites use Apache

Let me tell you, whatever that thing is it is one damn hacked server.

It doesn't give redirects for missing trailing '/'s but instead  seems to
just use full paths everywhere.

The only way I found to get a redirect out of it is:

Trying 204.71.177.70...
Connected to www5.yahoo.com.
Escape character is '^]'.
GET "info" HTTP/1.0

HTTP/1.0 302 Found
Location: http://www.yahoo.com/info/index.html

a "asdf . asdf" request returns the main page.

HTTP/1.0 200 OK
Content-Length: 9364
Expires: Sat, 21 Mar 1998 14:00:02 GMT      
Content-Type: text/html

I'm guessing it is one big dynamic content engine; it generates dynamic
content with content-lengths, etc.

If it is Apache, then IIS is closer to Apache than this thing is.  <g>

Hmm.  random.yahoo.com looks more like something:

Trying 204.71.177.145...
Connected to add.yahoo.com.
Escape character is '^]'.
adf
<HEAD><TITLE>Bad Request</TITLE></HEAD>
<BODY><H1>Bad Request</H1>
Your browser sent a query that
this server could not understand.<P>
</BODY>
Connection closed by foreign host.

Aha!  Got it!

Trying 204.71.177.145...
Connected to add.yahoo.com.
Escape character is '^]'.
adf . asdf

HTTP/1.0 400 Bad Request
Date: Fri, 20 Mar 1998 00:57:31 GMT
Server: Apache/1.1.1
Content-type: text/html

<HEAD><TITLE>Bad Request</TITLE></HEAD>
<BODY><H1>Bad Request</H1>
Your browser sent a query that
this server could not understand.<P>
</BODY>

It is Apache running on at least one of their sites.  Found it.  Freaky.

Guess all the content could be by a script that using an invalid method
bypasses.
