    Interesting URL about issues related to maintaining a large web site:


    Building and maintaining a large-scale media site that
    performs quickly, reliably and takes advantage of the
    Web has turned into big business for a group of
    software companies (and associated integrators and
    consultants) that build large, custom (''packaged'')
    applications, often atop popular database systems,
    intended to bring order to an unruly process.


    The head of product development at one New
    York-based media site who has supervised development
    on both homegrown and packaged systems says:
    ''These programs are huge, expensive and about as
    useless and clumsy as you can imagine. Never again, I
    promise you.''

    Another use for OHS/DKR technology?
