comment Connected to a VPN on Mac OS X, now what?
@kylex It's under the Finder Go menu, or Cmd-K. Now that I've answered that, and even though RTFM is frowned upon as an answer in this forum, I would like to say that the Mac Help menu would have been your friend on this one...

comment Any free TCP socket monitoring application?
I suggest you edit the question and add some more details: mainly which OS you'd like the utility to run on. As the question stands, it's very difficult to answer.

comment Any reason to use a rack-mountable server if I lack a rack to mount it on?
At a place I used to work (in a non IT capacity) they had a rack-mount Dell server hanging from a chain on the office kitchen wall. I've never seen anything so ugly and depressing..!

comment Best system administrator accident
@J.Pablo - No, I'm afraid this was over ten years ago, when cameras were big and had chemicals in them and stuff. If I'd done it recently, I'd have had the aftermath on YouTube within ten minutes!
