comment Understanding XP users accessing a UCC certificate on IIS8
so why do we need SNI? do you think I was right in assuming that the first matching site for the IP serves the SSL certificate - and this works for the second site only because it is a UCC certificate

Junction will show 'UNKNOWN MICROSOFT REPARSE POINT' if the drive is missing (I have Windows Home Server and I'm pulling out each drive in turn and see this for every file)

comment AppFabric error while Set Caching Service configuration
I wish they would explain why somewhere? AppFabric is free so I don't see how it's got anything to do with licensing. UNC shares for a single machine to reference itself just seems icky

comment SQL Server restore a backup results in an error
It's important to check if you have SqlExpress installed (you may have it installed without realizing you have it). It is very easy to log into SqlExpress by mistake and then panic because it won't let you restore a 2008 database to it. This is probably a very common reason for getting this error.

comment Dedicated Web Server: Dual Core 3.0GHz Verses Quad Core 2.4GHz
I don't think it implies one single thread can be processed at 9.6GHz. Thats exactly why i put 'power' in quotes :-) We're talking a webserver here - and since when does a webserver do its work in one thread anyway. This is about mathematical 'averages'

right - basically its about speed. it takes a few ms to send to my local server vs. up to 2-3 seconds to send to gmail - which may even fail

comment How frequently do Amazon CloudFront objects expire?
i'll check this using Fiddler. thanks for the tip. i'm in the same location with the same IP though. i'm just wondering if theyre trialing this change because a value 24 hours i'm sure is losing them a lot of customers for many applications
