.htaccess or some other solution for altering a url across a domain?

Dreamhost recently upgraded its software and the htaccess file no longer works. Is there a solution for this problem? [more inside]

How can I update a textbox in a slide object in the middle of a loop in E-Prime?

Computer Coding: I'm trying to write an experiment in E-Prime that uses a Visual Analog Scale to allow subjects to bid on items. Basically, this means they move a slider with their mouse over a bar, and the position on the bar represents how much they are willing to bid. The thing is, they need to know what value the slider currently represents before they can actually bid, and I'm having problems getting the text to update with the cursor position. Now, if any of you out there are E-Prime gurus I could really use your help for this bit. I need to figure out how to update a textbox in a 'slide' object in the middle of a loop. [more inside]
