More on Command Line Urls..

Mike has written an addenda to my previous post on his site: sowbug.org: Command-line URL

This stuff is fun! Mike's notes show you what you need to do in the apache config file to make your urls even more normalized. Check it out.

An interesting side conversation is what if you want your pages to appear normal, but actually make them sort of sneaky? For instance, suppose you want to "tag" your users so you can tell when they refer people to your website, you can put an identifying collection into the url, based on their user id. This would fall into the category of likely evil, but informative. Ah, but I'm rambling now :-)

Why not use mod rewrite for that?

There is really no end to ways of doing this.
