comment Amazon SES domain verification TXT DNS record
@Skittles - Also, I even assumed I might had misunderstood your issue in the first place and still tried to assemble relevant information; and I continued to do this by recommending Route 53 once the actual issue surfaced in your comment. The two things I tried to get across are simply a) your registrar has unusual deficits in his DNS console, which are hard to impossible to diagnose/address without further details from them, and b) you missed to state that problem in your question. The goal of the latter is simply to improve on that in the future for the benefit of all participants.

comment Amazon SES domain verification TXT DNS record
@Skittles - You response is quite inappropriate, I haven't stated RTFM anywhere in my post, rather tried to link to relevant information, as I always do. Have you even considered how much time it took me to assemble this post like so in order to help you? I've clearly stated how to properly format a standard TXT record - please reconsider: it is impossible to deduce the absence of the required Name field in your registrars DNS console from your sentence "Is this how you would make the TXT record properly?"! How should I figure that your registrar is hiding a crucial part?

comment Amazon SES domain verification TXT DNS record
@Skittles - How could I possibly have figured this essence from your post, after all you've left out exactly the key information of this being an issue with your specific registrar rather than with SES and/or TXT records in general? I'm not able to help you with this unusual DNS management setup (and I doubt someone else will) - if their support isn't able to explain how to create standard TXT records, I can only recommend switching your DNS to e.g. Amazon Route 53, which has a decent record management UI and API (I've never looked back myself ...).

comment Is there a Windows equivalent of Unix 'CPU steal time'?
+1 for the thorough exploration indeed, highly appreciated. So regarding EC2 this apparently boils down to Unix/Linux guests running in Xen paravirtual mode, which is a paravirtualized domain (i.e. not full virtualization, the guest OS is modified to run on the host), where steal time is available, vs. Windows/FreeBSD/... guests running in Xen HVM, which is a hardware emulated domain (i.e. the guest OS is unmodified to run on the host), where it apparently isn't - so a definite negative answer, guess that's what counts. Do I read you correctly that it could get added eventually?
