Slashdot discussion on HA and load balancing

As I've said before, I figure that everyone who reads my blog also reads slashdot, but on the off chance you glossed over this Ask Slashdot article, there is a discussion going on of best practices right now regarding High Availability Load Balancing

This is something that I have struggled with myelf. My lengthy fight with, and eventual loss to RH clustering notwithstanding, I've had a lot of success with using dedicated devices to load balance between services. 

I'm interested in hearing the ways you solve this problem. I'll be paying attention to the Slashdot article, because there's almost always a better way, regardless of how you're doing it.
