do I look like I care?

curiosity

Hi all
Noob question:

1) according to a document I read a long time ago here in dev, LJ is using mod_backhand, but also has BIG/IPs. Why do you use mod_backhand? Won't the BIG/IPs do that job?

2) is there a document on the backend setup of LJ, server-wise? I am not a programmer but I am an administrator and find other people's setups fascinating.

thanks

D
