comment unattended recovery from image
In my case it was to recover systems that had been screwed up by users. However I did have the benefit of the recovery being applied by someone who would be at least know how to turn on a computer (i.e. student intern or the like) and the disks where stored under IT control.

comment Old Pentium 4 server - should I put it to use?
Given that's a Northwood chip you've got there, and we're going into November, you could use it to keep your house warm during the winter months.

comment Making wi-fi available in college dorms
FYI: The FCC doesn't apply the same 4 watt output limit to directional transmitters... You could try dropping a 25 foot directional dish beside the building, point it at the windows, and turn the dial up to "dead pigeons".

comment Oracle Vs SQL Server to handle around 6-7 Terabytes of data
Most white papers dealing at that level of scale are pay-to-see. You can look at independent numbers like tpc.org/tpcc/results/tpcc_perf_results.asp but those only cover transactions per minute. I personally go by the gold standard, UPS (United Parcel Service). While there are databases that occupy more space (several national record keeping databases), when it comes to using the data UPS has them beat (hundreds of millions of transactions/day). UPS has experimented with Oracle for years, but they've never been able to scale it to DB2 levels (it is still used for plane scheduling)
