comment How can I prevent Terminal Server Users from restarting the server after an Automatic Update?
@rachel: "Let me choose when to install" is Microsoft-ese for "Bug me every 10 minutes until I click 'install'". If they have to be on, set it to reboot automatically at a convenient time.

comment Steps to optimize an IIS server for PHP
@sirtap: Just because it's Cake eating cycles, don't assume the problem is Cake's problem. More likely the code is doing something stupid with Cake. Also Cake. (Needed to say Cake one more time.)

comment Should I be worried about server load peaks?
I agree. A few spikes in the off hours are fine, as long as important things don't grind to a halt. You can always use nice to keep the scripts from eating all the cycles...Might double the run-time, but if performance isn't impacted, so what?

comment Advice on Active Directory design for multihomed servers
Well, I suppose there is no reason you can't set up two domains, and then lump them into a tree/forest, and call it a day. Then you could use the built-in stuff to manage most of the issues. Still, someone needs to slap the stupid out of them. This is no way to build a network.

comment Why does nmap report different results from localhost?
+1: Programs can bind to 127.0.0.1 or 192.168.1.2, or both, or neither. If you nmap 127.0.0.1, and then nmap 192.168.1.2 those are totally different animals, even if both addresses belong to the same machine.

comment Replace text on MySQL - Wildcards to replace certain variable parts?
@javipas: No databases do, really. They're for storing, sorting, and returning data. Updates are cumbersome, and complex ones are almost always done using something other than SQL.

comment Why would you use IPv6 internally?
@shane: If I cared about going 6to4, you might have a point. The vast majority of machines do not need to be accessible from the outside world.
