comment Recover from DNS NameServer crash
GoDaddy is pretty unreliable; if I needed any kind of guaranteed uptime, I'd move them.

comment Storing pictures in a database on phpMyAdmin
@engprof: I'd use "varchar"; you're limited to 255 characters, but that's plenty for rational file names, and the speed is much faster than for text-type objects. Then, yep, you just pull the name of the image (with the information for it's location in the file system), and put that in a regular image tag. If you're going to be storing 10's of thousands of images, it makes sense to set up a hierarchy of image directories, so that you don't run into issues with the directories getting too large.

comment Biggest command-line mistake?
Hah. Once upon a time, in a poorly configured college network, a friend of mine found out that, if you logged into a netware machine using the machine login that was bound to a mac, it didn't set your permissions correctly, and you could do university wide broadcasts...He set up a program that would do one every hour or so, but screwed up his count zero, so it did one after an hour, and then another 30 minutes later, and then 15, then 7...I wandered in to work to find the student techs trying to find out how a mac that they'd ripped out of the wall was sending constant broadcasts. Good times.

It'll probably be logged as "ICMP type 8, echo request"
