Cookie / Session Based Authentication vs HTTP Authentication

How come most websites roll their own authentication methods around cookie-based sessions, rather than using http authentication built in to most web servers? Is this a security issue, or a user interface issue? Or something else?

Webpages with lots of Ads

I'm doing some research on Adblocking software for web browsing. I'm interested in webpages with a lot of ads, or various types of ads on one page to run tests against. Do you have links to any particularily annoying pages?

Alpha Channels for Flash

FlashFilter: I would like to lay a flash movie _over_ a web page and have web content show through the movie (in defined areas). Is there a way to specify an alpha channel (or other masking option) for a flash file? I'm certain there is, but my flash programmer is a neophyte and doesn't believe me.

Can a browser pass HTTP requests the same as BitTorrent?

Is there any reason why standard HTTP requests can't work the same as the BitTorrent protocol? It seems like this would allow websites to avoid the "slashdot/metafilter" effect when traffic surges to an individual site and overwhelms the servers. Seems like this could happen on the client side, with enabled web browsers passing requested data the same as a torrent client. I don't know enough about the underlying technologies to determine if this is a stupid question or not, so please be gentle as you take me down a notch.

Looking for a free hit counter for a business site

What is the best (and free'est) hit counter? I would like to be able to make it invisible to the surfer and have it collect statistics. Sitemeter used to be great but they are not around anymore it seems. They had statistics available so you could see who was at your site and which pages they were at, etc. Don't know how to do coding so I have no backend database or cgi, etc. experience...unless it is super easy to figure out or a stand alone java applet.

floating an image in dynamic content

CSS with dynamic content. I'm trying to create a web page using CSS and text pulled from a database, so that it looks like this: http://www.blogfucker.com/junk/css_help.gif. "Image 2" is simply floated left. Very simple to do with static content. But this is for a client who will only be able to edit the text, which will be entered as a single block of text. How do I throw a floated image in there so it shows up roughly in the middle of the page? I've considered writing a script to count the number of paragraphs (or even characters) and dividing by two, and throwing it in that way. But I feel there must be a simpler way.

html for a total novice... how do I get a slide show effect with random order of pages?

I am a total html novice. I have ten pages, "page1.html" through "page10.html" that I have already created. I want to have a link ("slide show!") on my home page "index.html" that, once clicked, creates a slide show of "page1" through "10", showing each page for 5 seconds until finished (never showing any page more than once.) I also want the order of the pages to be random (ie showing the slide show in a different order each time the link on "index" is clicked.) Is this possible? If so how in the heck can I do it!?!?

Web in China

Much to my surprise, I have been given a visa to visit ol' zhongguo (china) for a few months (i'll be doing research on minorities). I would like to be able to surf the net anonymously but I'm a bit of a nOOb when it comes to proxy servers and what not. I remember seeing a similar question on slashdot but answers said things like "Just ssh into ..." I know what ssh is, etc. but i'm not sure how to use a proxy through ssh. can anyone give me some basic instructions? I would appreciate help. Comments like "Don't go to China if you don't want to obey their rules!!!" or whatever are less appreciated. Thanks!

The web most miraculous

I'm looking for surprises about the web that few would have expected 10 years ago. Like Google maps, with satellite images. Or that "view your block" option on Amazon. There are indeed many marvelous benefits on the www. What is a most unexpected feature on the web today that would have seemed 'unrealistic' to expect just 10 years ago? I'm looking for the non-obvious.

name that tune

I'm looking at a book for my son that has simple tunes for kids to play on the kazoo, but actually has the sheet music listed with the tune. I'm wondering if there is a web page that would let you "transcribe" the notes on the page and hit submit such that it would play back a midi or something so I can hear the general tune. Does this exist?

Short cut to "Printer Friendly Format" on news sites?

I'm really tired of all the advertising and dancing crap that clutters up most news/magazine web articles. I find myself constantly searching for a "Printer Friendly Format" link so that I can read the article in a column wider than 1 inch and not paginated in such a way as to maximize ad views. Is there any utility, web site, firefox extension, something, that can take me to the "PFF" right away?

Wiki-like, server-side web page editing?

Is there server-side software that that I can log into to give me a directory listing of all the pages and folders on my web server and allow me edit the text and upload binary files? Even better would be to have it allow me to put a little edit link somewhere on the page if it knows via cookies that I'm logged in. I'd like to be able to easily edit my site from anywhere. It's not exactly a wiki because they seem to have their own directory structures, I don't need their special formatting syntax, and it wouldn't be communal. Of course, free is preferable.
