Hey Nick,

Glad I posted it nevertheless. That way I had you put my nose down
on the mod_negotiation documentation - which I considered too
complicated so far.

When facing a problem, I tend to use those tools which I understand.
That may be reinventing the wheel, but it feels better then
playing around with a productive server in a hurry.

And now I'll turn back to your Apache Modules book that
landed on my desk today. Expecting an interesting day.
