comment Prevent users from changing the system time on windows
You could check how the commands "w32tm", "date" and "time" actually behave ... I assume your other accounts do not have admin access via UAC?

comment 500 Internal Server Error on Wordpress - BUT WORKS from a different country
Have you checked that DNS resolves the hostnames involved to what you THINK it resolves them to? Stale DNS caches can play nasty tricks on you...

comment Something is burning in the server room; how can I quickly identify what it is?
Thermal cameras go for under a grand nowadays, and if you are running a big server room they are a tool well worth to have.

comment Stopping memcached: [FAILED]. Why?
Inelegance is not the question there... but expiring all of a cache at one point in time is a good way to stampede the application under heavy load.

comment How Serviceable are Tape Drives?
One very nasty failure mode with some tape technologies is that drives can fail in a way that they can still read and write a tape fine ... which no other drive can read anymore.

comment Server hacked - help needed
In case a system that had been compromised really needs to go on again as it is after cleanup: Do not "cleanly" uninstall the exploit/rootkit, but sabotage it as good as you can (eg make sure things it relies on no longer work as expected, set immutable attributes on files you know it will have to change and lcap away the key, firewall/blackhole the SMTP traffic in any underhanded way you can think of ...) ...

comment Server hacked - help needed
OK, my take on the Nuke from Orbit issue: The only alternative is what you could probably aptly call Orbit from Nuke. Get an exact (rsync -vac or dd) copy of the compromised servers filesystem made while a trusted rescue system is booted. Diff with a known good similar system or backup, maybe installing known good same versions of software into comparison system to compare, and analyse differences until every difference is accounted for. Do not take anything online again until reasons for compromise are found and eliminated.
