If you're not careful, your personal webpage might make an impression even
if you don't want it to. If your server is set up like most servers,
index.html is the default and if there is no index file, it'll show a
listing of all the files and subdirectories in the directory. So let's say
you send me a URL complete with the file you want me to look at. I look at
it and I am just curious enough to use the backspace key to see what else is
in the directory. I've done this when I am curious about site where an
account has been hosted or when I am looking for specific information
