@lucy24: No regex in Deny,Allow, but can use cidr blocks:
Yup, that's where it helps if your father taught you the binary system when you were eight. At first I had to count on my fingers and draw rows of dots and plug in the abacus, but now I can look at a pair of numbers and say /19 or /12 without even counting. Barring those weird ranges that keep nibbling at adjoining blocks until they end up with something like nnn.1.0.0 - nnn.40.255.127
The issue came up in this thread [webmasterworld.com]. I've never used anything but CIDR* blocks. Would never have occurred to me that you could use anything else.
* Detour to g### here. Classless Inter-Domain Routing. Sounds like a modern commuter train.
