Subject: [thelist] cancel: custom page extentions

: <tip type="creating custom page extensions in IIS">
: 1) Open the properties page for your web site in IIS
: 2) Select the "Home Directory" tab
: 3) Click on the "configuration" button
: 4) Make sure the "mappings" tab is selected
: 5) Click on the "add" button
: 6) Input the path to the executable and your
: custom extention
: Note that if you write your code with custom extensions,
: you probably won't ever be able to run the app/site on a
: server you don't control. Pretty silly practice.
: </tip>


Please explain why this is a "pretty silly practice". Personally I can think
of a few reasons why an administrator would not want to give this
functionality out to users on a shared box.
