Heading to ApacheCon

logo_203x93.gif I’m off to Vegas tonight for the ApacheCon conference. I’m looking forward to learning about what people are doing with Apache 2.0.

I’ve got this idea for a cool Apache 2.0 filter which I’m planning to work on in January. Basically, I’d like to be able to hilight search terms on a web page. You could tell what the user searched for by looking at the HTTP Referer header for patterns like http://www.google.com/search?q=search+terms+here and then highlight them as they appear in the page.

We could certainly use such a feature at work internally, and it would be yet another incentive for folks to make the switch from Apache 1.3 to Apache 2.0.
