I never checked it before, I think, since I didn't think about having a web
server that I could reference by its IP address. So, I also have the regular
kind of blinking on my cable modem. Is this related to the Code Red virus?
When I'm home, I don't have any problem accessing my web server through
DynDNS service, so I know that the server is properly configured. And with
Personal Web Sharing under OS 9, it's hard to have a bad configuration.
Anyway, I'm more thinking that Cox somehow filter out those HTTP request
somehow, but I'm not an HTML expert, so I could be wrong...

brute force adj.: Describes a primitive programming style, one in which the programmer relies on the computer's processing power instead of using his or her own intelligence to simplify the problem, often ignoring problems of scale and applying naive methods suited to small problems directly to large ones. The term can also be used in reference to programming style: brute-force programs are written in a heavyhanded, tedious way, full of repetition and devoid of any elegance or useful abstraction (see also brute force and ignorance).
