comment USB Flash Drives As Boot Drives In File Server
We use, admittedly HP-supplied, USB sticks to boot ESX 4i from all the time, it only ever writes back to the disk with a crash-dump so they work just fine. Great way to upgrade your machine, just stick a new stick in, in fact the newer HP blades have an SD slot that you can eject far easier than even a USB stick.

comment Back up of Streaming server
We need to keep proper backups as we store metadata with video files that changes (prices, shutout periods etc.) so we need the ability to restore from previous backup for compliance reasons. Many wouldn't but I thought I'd mention our situation.

comment Leaving my wifi open for the world
Because they already have public liability in that they open their doors to the public, they ensure that there are signs regarding their legal position on this matter available and that they often force you to accept T's & C's on their front page before letting you browse elsewhere.

comment Using Ghost to migrate servers versus virtualization
Oh and Evan, I'm totally with you, 100% VM-guy (VCP3&4 in fact) but if you only had one machine you're not going to gain that much from VMing it - I think he'll be happy either way.

comment Using Ghost to migrate servers versus virtualization
No Darrel, but both paths involve similar degrees of effort - all I'm saying that is for a single box it's all a bit 50/50 which way you go.
