comment WSUS breakeven number of computers
I have 10 computers at my house, but 6 of them are at my desk,2 are Apple, one is on a Work domain, and 1 in another room but I can update any time I want. And you may not have a server at home. At work, I can't just interupt other workers to check updates, and I've got other work to do myself. I already had a server for WSUS. Break-even at 2 or 3 computers is a reasonable estimate.

comment Should I expose my Active Directory to the public Internet for remote users?
Cached credentials on domain-connected windows machines are cached exactly the same way if you use "Cisco ASA VPN" "Start Before Logon (SBL), or if you use MS remote access client, or if you use a direct connection: what do you mean 'more cumbersome'? It's not particularly cumbersome:

comment How to make a Macintosh register a Hostname to the DHCP Server?
It is unusual to allow random hosts to change DNS settings. You normally need to be authenticated to do that. What happens on some routers, including Windows Servers if set that way, is that DHCP clients are are automatically added to DNS, using authentication credentials from the DHCP server.

comment Is my DNS Recursion setup okay?
Forwarding IS recursion. Recursion done by the DNS server acting as a client. If you disable forwarding, clients do repeated (recursive) requests to your DNS. If you disable recursion, your DNS should REFER to another DNS, and your clients then do DNS requests to that other DNS server. That doesn't solve the public-good problem either: if your clients can use the internet, they can make DNS requests.

comment Trans-atlantic VOIP
Asterisk is only a directory/connection service. The VOIP calls go direct customer-gateway-call centre. AUS customers to AUS gateway, AUS call centre won't see trans-Pacific Latency. Canadian customers to Canadian gateway, VOIP trunk, AUS call-centre will. Gateway Latency is always significant. TransPacific latency adds to this, but it doesn't multiply-it doesn't affect the Gateway latency. To reduce Gateway/Trunk latency, don't use a cheap gateway, don't use a cheap network provider -- different providers have different trans-pacific latency.

comment Application Event Log keeps getting corrupted
You get events in the event log when they are added to the event log, not when they happen. Crash events, and event log crash events, are NEVER added when they happen, its not possible, they are ALWAYS added when you query the crash dump log, whatever that is. They ALWAYS show up days or months later when you reboot or do something else that triggers the add-to-event-log activity.
