Hello, I am an architect from The Netherlands, or better known as "Holland". My knowledge of programming is very tiny and limited only to digital interfaces we interact with as humans or more simply as living mammals.

However, recently I have found out that skilled programming techniques not only are helpful in areas of websites, but also in game design, game interiors, realworld architecture, urbanism, flow controll of hydrolics, balloon flights... and even in designing public parks that interact with humans! The unique outcomes of such projects fascinates me daily.

Feel free to contact me for fun/brainstorms/ideas/projects.

comment How to rewrite from /page to /xx/page, using htaccess & apache only?
have tried to catch the errors but firefox timeouts.. I just had a marvelous idea! i could install your code, remember the time, and then when the errors come, check immediately in the log files in my plesk account! perhaps i can see the error message there, cause the browser wont give any specific error... will check back soon. Thanks for suggestions!

Thanks Chris. With the new rules in place on my Apache/2.0.54 (Fedora) each and every of the rules crash :( no results come out. Strange! old rules work good, except the last wish. Boy i wished i spoke this exotic Apache more fluently sothat i could get this fixed... sigh

Dear Dennis, thanks somuch for your support, but, it still doesnt work! have pasted the rules (deleted my own long rules) then pasted yours and edited (see below my question) but images dont appear then. With the long rules they do fine. Someting is wrong but donno what...

Wauw looks prmising, before i check, i will just give you the well deserved points for a real answer, thanks so much! A note Chris, the language is always a two letter word (see in my question [a-z][a-z] which i believe covers that specific thing. While any actual page is a word, longer than two characters... Cant this information help separate the two sothat site.com/en/ or site.com/en both work without apache thinking /en is a page?

Gosh, i'm in all ways against any wars! so how should i make them sing peace? Perhaps the Conditional rules together with the [ ] endings can help to chain these three rules into one elegant rule. should i start a new question and mark yours as answered?

Thanks Mark for your completely new insight. Before i test it a quick question: what are besides ` - ` other valid normal-problem-free delimiters that proxy caches love? I CAN use other delimiters, BUT verymuch prefer the shorter -w350-h10-q90.jpg as oposed to -w-350-h-10-q-90.jpg

Already did that, same: nothing appears. Firefox says redirection error. [hands in my hair from this problem!]

Repacing !^/../ with ![^/.]+ gives no errors, but also doesnt redirect /somepage to /en/somepage ... i have the feeling its the condition that is causing the error... language folders are two lowercase chars. is !^([a-z][a-z]) a better condition? unfortunately loops also when /somepage is typet, giving a url like: /enenenenenenenenenenenenenenenenenenenenhome.php

Thanks Chris, gave you a great comment for your persintence/checking. 1) when /somepage is typed: goes into a loop /enenenenenenenenenenenenenenensomepage and gives error 2) when / is typed (just domain no page) it gives redirect error in firefox, nothing loads)
