    I generally do not respond to flamers, but there's enough substance in what you said to warrant a reply.

    You said, "SSL won't work." That's true, and it's something I didn't consider. I know the...

    svidgen, you baffle me. I didn't get a satisfactory solution to the problem here, so when I got one elsewhere I came back and shared it. For that, you volunteered your opinion that I'm a jerk. You're...

    I posted the question on another board, and I got a reply from a different perspective that cleared up the issue nicely.

    First, I was advised that the "up to 48 hours" of refresh time, which I got...

    It appears to me that we've gotten away from the original topic by focusing on the purely technical side of the problem, then getting "stuck" there when we found no good purely technical fix.

    Um, there seems to be a misunderstanding here. I think we've gone in a circle.

    The OP's question looks profoundly different to me than it does to Spufi.

    I think of web design as primarily a creative, rather than a technical activity. HTML, CSS, etc. are skills that anyone...

    That's one of the solutions I thought of, and in general it seems to be the most feasible one. I see a serious problem with it, though, and I don't know whether it has a reasonable solution.

    The new host is giving me 404's when I try to load a page that requires rewriting. It appears to be...
