comment Global DNS provider: DNSMadeEasy vs UltraDNS
Unless I am missing something, opendns.com doesn't seem to provide a hosting service, only a lookup service.

comment Convert a CSV file to a XLS file on the linux command line?
In Office 2007, I get a warning "The file you are trying to open is in a different format than specified by the file extension. Verify that the file is not corrupted and from a trusted souce before opening the file. Do you want to open the file now?", which probaly isn't acceptable in many cases.

comment Convert a CSV file to a XLS file on the linux command line?
If a csv saved with a .xls extension doesn't work, you could try a tab separated text file. That's an easy conversion as long as there are no newlines or tabs in the data.

comment When would you use the “password never expires” option?
I really have no understanding of how forcing users to change their passwords is supposed to help. Do users like to reveal their old passwords after a while? I guess it helps if the attacker wants to lie low for a while before launching an attack, but that seems like a small unlikely gain.

comment Graphical MySQL tools
This would be a good answer if it didn't start with the statement "There is no free GUI". If you edit that, I'll upvote you.

comment Any good resources to train helpdesk workers on the basics of avoiding social engineering attacks?
@ErikA: One example story from the Kevin Mitnick book (mentioned in another answer) is a hundred times better than any amount of just telling people not to give out information.

I was kind of hoping for links to articles and stuff, not just random small tips.
