comment Office drones want wireless mice. How can I avoid interference?
Yeah, I remember stories when the 802.11n-draft devices were first coming out that they worked better at jamming everyone elses signals than giving you a working connection.

You can also host multiple SSL sites at the same IP under a Unified Communication Certificate (UCC), see help.godaddy.com/article/3908

comment How to move a ruby on rails application to a new server
Unfortunately other projects delayed this and has now fallen off the back burner behind the stove and is covered in a pile of dust. I've accepted your answer as was the only presented and has some points of direction to go in.

comment Chinese Hacker-Bots attempting to exploit our systems 24/7
Another thing to consider, I've seen this used on the mail side, is look for tools that instead of just ignoring or rejecting packets will actually accept their request, then take a while to respond. Odds are their tools aren't that well written and so will be waiting for your response before going on to the next. One blank response every 5 seconds is a lot better than 100 rejections per second.

Agreed, if you are doing business there, you aren't going to be able to avoid it 100% and will require "smart" tools to stop as much as you can.

comment Can I use a Google Appliance/Mini to crawl and index sites I don't own?
You can't be forced to use it as the implementation is on the crawler side, not the server side. As far as legal, not that I have heard of, but I've never investigated it. AFAIK it is purely a community created standard to help everyone play nice with each other.

comment Chinese Hacker-Bots attempting to exploit our systems 24/7
I've had servers come under attack and blocked encompassing subnets from China to hault the traffic. I've considered making this more of a permanent move, unless running international services that require communication with China, I'm not sure what the downside would be.

comment Obtaining administrator access to Windows XP (lost password)
It has been a few years since I've needed to use it, but back then ntpasswd worked best by setting the password to blank, boot the machine and set the password within Windows, ymmv.

comment Is it possible to Remote Desktop to Console 0 of a remote XP SP3 machine using mstsc.exe /admin?
Correct, the "workstation" OSs (XP, Vista, 7) only allow one RDP session and it is the console session. That is why when you RDP to the machine, at the physical screen you are locked out.

comment vmware server end of life, where to go now?
Regarding VMWare Server being "silently" discontinued, VMWare server has not been recommended for Production equipment for a long time, it was for testing and development, production was supposed to be on ESX/ESXi.
