Well having been away from Brunel for 2 weeks I come back and find that they
are trying to install a HyperG server and looking at it to replace the HTTPDs
that we have. I never got the server running when I tried a long while back,
but they are still trying - and waxing lyrical about what it can do that the
HTTPDs cant.

So what I want to know is this.

* Does anyone have any experience with this?
* What is the main advantage of HTTPDs (one person mentioned automatic indexing
but I find that a tad dubious)?
* And what are the main disadvantages?
* Should anyone consider moving to HyperG? (I dont think so but I need to know
for sure :)

Thats all I can think of now :)
