where's my excess server load?
Don, I'm not saying you have excess server load :)
All I'm saying is, that using mod_rewrite with nested conditions makes the server go back to the start of the line each time until the entire line is processed. Thus, if you have many of these, it would be prudent to use mod_authz_host (allow, deny) to block ip ranges instead.
I use about 20 lines of mod_rewrite myself for various tasks. It's when these become complex that the processing time could become an issue.
@ not2easy Yes, combining lines is good. I do this for each A class for simple managing. Theoretically, you could combine thousands on a single line.
