So?

ETA: if your geek-fu wasn't so weak you could probably get that yourself from the "server" line of an HTTP response

ETA2: just tried it, no dice, nevermind.

But my "So" comment still stands. I haven't kept up to date on versions, but even version numbers don't really matter if vulnerabilities are patched. Trust me, I've tried (in a laboratory environment)

? Suck my Geek-Fu, mofo. I'm in the 14th year of an I.T. career.

The whole f'n POINT is that the NCAA just shit all over the nation's college's demanding they drop Indian mascots out of their misguided Politically Correct horseshit. Yet there they are, usins software with an Indian name.

But your ass wants to sniffle and play one-up games.

ok, you obviously missed it, from being TOO MUCH of a Geek - I wasn't dissing their choice of software for Technical reasons, dummy.

I jumped the gun a little bit - the PC v. Mac religious war I got into recently made me think that all of sudden somebody hated Apache for some ungodly reason

ETA: Which was the basis of the weak geek-fu thing - nobody with strong geek-fu would hate Apache - Sorry dude, my bad.

ETA2: The funny thing is, I knew about the NCAA thing. But "Apache" means "web server" to me instead of "Indian" or even "attack helicopter" so that crucial connection was not made

You KNOW they will. And the next week after it gets widespread media attention they'll be offline as hordes of script-kiddies hammer the shit out of it.

The Apache web server evolved from the NCSA web server, it was patched to fix bugs and add new features.
It was "a patchy server", so the authors named it Apache. The web site does have an indian looking feather.

Well, the defense to it is that Apache started as some old form of http server that was adopted by some group, which had to put out patches pretty much weekly for it. So it became known as 'that patchy server'. It evolved into 'apache server' The name stuck.

That's geek lore as it has been passed down to me.

Those are Native American names. Indian names are like Kiran, Divyesh, Chandra, Patel, etc..

Why the name "Apache"?

The name 'Apache' was chosen from respect for the Native American Indian tribe of Apache (Indé), well-known for their superior skills in warfare strategy and their inexhaustible endurance. For more information on the Apache Nation, we suggest searching Google, Northernlight, or AllTheWeb.

Secondarily, and more popularly (though incorrectly) accepted, it's a considered cute name which stuck. Apache is "A PAtCHy server". It was based on some existing code and a series of "patch files".

Dear NCAA,

Recently I read about your organization's efforts to restrict and prohibit the use of hostile and abusive racial/ethnic/national origin mascots, nicknames, or imagery by NCAA colleges and universities. From what I have been able to learn, the NCAA is taking this quite seriously and believes that by such a policy will "enhance the integrity of intercollegiate athletics". I also understand that any use of mascots and imagery on an institutions uniforms or paraphernalia is strongly discouraged. With such a far reaching and ambitious effort, I believe the NCAA Sports organization must lead by example and ensure it is also operating with adherence to its own policies and guidelines.

I spend a fair amount of time on both the NCAA Sports, and NCAA web site and, while exploring recently, was extremely disappointed to find both sites are being run and served with the "Apache" web server. To make matters worse, the Apache Software Foundation's Logo is a colored feather - as you would typically find in a Native American head dress. Clearly, with such a stereotype being advanced, it is unacceptable for the NCAA to continue using this software under any circumstance.

Fortunately, other software options without this offensive association are available which will allow you to deliver a similar level of performance to your readers. Certainly any cost or effort involved with the conversion will be justified and well received by the public and media. Please investigate these options and discontinue your association with the Apache Software Foundation. An organization as large and visible as the NCAA should not be lending credibility and support to the continued advancement of unacceptable stereotypes and representations.

Sincere thanks,

The Apache web server is named so because it was:

a patchy web server.

But Apache was easier to spell!
Link Posted: 8/20/2005 12:10:20 PM EDT
Does anyone know why it was named Apache?
Link Posted: 8/20/2005 12:38:23 PM EDT
This just in!!

AH-64s renamed "Fuzzy Bunny".

OH-58s renamed "Tolerance and Diversity".

UH-60s renamed "Snail Darter".
