Bleck... We've been cut off the Internet the whole night, and the local Ethernet is a mess. As I only ftp'ed NCSA httpd 1.2 binary and source, not documentation, I had to install it reading the source code... yucko. Hopefully everything seems to be working all right by now (6am), and I have converted all my files to the new server-include and server-exec . Also, the last-modified field of each page is now automatically generated by the server, but since I've had to modify them all tonight...

I've put a real welcome sound sample in my home page btw, beneath the topmost audio icon. Also, the page describing who I am is more furnished now.

I finally decided to move my web pages off www.enst.fr to mistral.enst.fr, avoiding that way NFS problems (web pages are now local). I've set up www.enst.fr to redirect /~pioch/ URL's to mistral. Also, the server should be 4 times faster than before, hehehehehe...

Plenty of new paintings for the WebMuseum exhibit, especially Van Gogh, Renoir and Seurat, thanks to Julien Maisonneuve (Julien.Maisonneuve@inria.fr).
