comment Where to find information on the IPv4 crunch, why to worry, what to do?
I see your point about the underutilized class A networks, but in reality if all the companies you listed gave back their entire network it would only put off the inevitable for a few months (IP4 address allocation was well over 200M/year last time I checked). Seriously, people have known about this problem for twenty years and the solution - IP6 - has been around for 12 years so it's not like an extra few months will really help anything.

comment Dreamhost DNS CNAMEs work at my house, not for anyone else
Did you IM your friends straight after creating the CNAME or did you wait a few hours for the new CNAME to replicate out through the DNS system? (Unfortunately it can sometimes can take a day or two to completely replicate out.)

comment Should I install Linux applications in /var or /opt?
/var is for "variable data files". Saying it's for "various system files" is ambiguous and potentially misleading. o_O You're right about "opt" though.

hmm, no, if the backup is in a tar file you'll have to use tar. as evildead said, when you are backing up files to a tar make sure you run tar with the -p switch (lowercase)

note that there is also a --delete option, but i strongly suggest not using it at all when syncing to a production server! (but if you do, make sure you have a complete recent backup!!!)

You could do the sync straight from your production server. e.g. if you run this on the production server: rsync -az -e ssh user@source-server.com:/var/www/testingdir/ /var/www/productiondir/ (change user@source-server.com to your testing server) it will log into your testing server and pull down all the files/directories from the remote '/var/www/testingdir' and place them (overwriting everything) in the local '/var/www/productiondir' directory. Test this command out on some non-production servers first if you're not familiar with rsync!

comment My database using sql server 2005 express is over 4GB, I have no money, am I screwed?
sounds like the best option to me. But if you do that then you're going to end up paying for it in the end. Unfortunately that's exactly what MS wants. To their credit they do make the '4gb limit' pretty clear, so it boils down to bad planning/lack of foresight on behalf of your former programmer. :/

comment Is it possible to mix 32- and 64 bit application pools on IIS6
"You need to upgrade to IIS7 for that." Does that mean changing the server operating system to Windows 2008 or newer?
