[sf-lug] need for .html suffix

Thanks for the tip, Rick.  "lighttpd" was the first web server I tried (as a result of a suggestion from someone I ran into at Noisebridge, don't remember who) and it served me well, but when the computer on which it was running began to give me problems, I found that when ever I asked questions, instead of any attempt at helpful answers, I got negative comments about lighttpd and advice to only consider Apache2.  So I did, and now I find myself back with lighttpd and based on your comments, I'll stick with it.
The next thing I'd like to try is to set up "name-based virtual hosts" (as opposed to virtual interfaces) and I've read that lighttpd can do this and that to do so might be even easier on lighttpd than it is on Apache.
I've also considered nginx although haven't got to the point of installing it to try it out. I found the books about it a bit daunting for my level of expertise. It sounds as though nginx might be more appropriate for installations much bigger than anything I'll ever run.

Give 'Lighty' a chance, by the way.  In my experience, it fills a
pleasant middle ground:  not as featureful as Apache httpd, but a great
deal smaller and faster.
