comment Will debian update packages that I've personally build from their official sources?
if you do apt-get clean and then retry the upgrade, do you get the same issue? Also, if you are on a version of apt-get <= 0.7.10 then you may be affected by this bug: bugs.debian.org/cgi-bin/bugreport.cgi?bug=351056

the reason for using cookie-less domains for images is largely mitigated by the header compression and pipelining in SPDY

comment Identify the computer owning an IP address whose DNS record is 'borrowed' from an old computer
+1 for nmap. The line Running: Microsoft Windows XP is an accurate way to determine OS - nmap uses "fingerprinting" of the target network stack to determine the OS. BTW Cadmus Computer Systems were a hardware manufacturer who went out of business many years ago, VirtualBox VMs always use MAC addresses assigned to them.

comment How do I find the last start time for a Hyper-V virtual machine?
Knowing when it was last shut down is good enough for my purpose. Another way of finding both the last start and last shutdown would be to boot the VM and look at it's own event log / syslog (assuming the clock is accurate) but obviously that will take longer per machine and will use resources on the host.
