If it ever happens again, can you confirm the IP?  I just checked the 
server, and the httpd process itself hasn't been restarted since July 3rd, 
and I just got into the office, so it isn't something that I did (or 
fixed) ... Dave, did you do anything to fix it?

Now, if you say it came up with the advocacy page ... the way that apache 
works is if you happen to go in via IP, it will reply with the first 
virtual host in its config file ... which happens to be ... but I don't know why, if you went in via name, 
it would do that ... and, just checked, and the last time that file was 
modified was "Feb 17 12:41" ...

As far as I know, it doesn't even rely on reverse DNS for anything (or, 
forward, for that matter), as the way I understand it, the browser sends 
the 'hostname' down the stream to tell the web server which virtual host 
to do ... which is why some of the older browsers wouldn't work with 
virtual named hosts, since they didn't know to send that information down 

Anyone else here know more then I do about this sort of thing?  Oleg?
