Hmmm... You're the second person I've seen using RewriteEngine On ...
RewriteEngine off.  Where are people getting that idea?  The RewriteEngine
off is overridding the rewriteEngine On and making apache ignore all the
rewriterules.  Get rid of it.

Also, if you want there to be anything in the $1, you'll need to replace
"/.*" with "/(.*)".

Finally, if you want something in the rewrite log file (good idea!),
you'll want a RewriteLog and RewriteLogLevel directive.
