@TomWij if you haven't hired a complete idiot, your IT guy will notice very quickly what's going on.

A competent admin will balk at being required to provide non-technical users with admin passwords except in emergencies. People who don't know what they're doing WILL be tempted to mess around with stuff they shouldn't. Seal them and lock them in a safe.

@TomWij if I were your IT guy and I knew you were doing IT work behind my back (backups or otherwise) on the system you charged me with managing, I would throw a fit. It costs you more, destroys any rapport you have with your employee, and will damage your company in the long run. Don't do that.

comment Unclear pricing of Windows Azure
Thanks for a really useful response. It is indeed very unclear about what precisely "stopped" means. This clears it up nicely.

comment Help finding a hosting service (offshore?) that doesn't automatically cave to DMCA demands
My typical recommendation for better registrar is Resell.biz. They have better prices, better customer service, and don't play daft games with their customer domains and livelihoods. They're not particularly "bulletproof" though. If you're looking for stronger registration protection, again, consider the former soviet bloc. The language barrier helps, and many companies there ignore takedown requests. Do your research - look at where major torrent sites and spammers are registered.

I'd be very interested in the resolution of this too. Post back when you figure out what's going on.

Not a bad theory, but not necessarily true either. Some subnet (say, a university, or a smaller ISP) might be mucking with the DNS records in a similar way.
