comment What's a read-only domain controller actually useful for?
@Massimo You don't need administrative access to AD to change anything - boot from a DVD and you can directly write to the AD databases.

comment Why is Enterprise Storage so expensive?
Worth pointing out that what is from the user's point of view "running out of space" may well be "filling your quota" from the sysadmin's point of view.

comment Cannot rebuild index because row above maximum size (Microsoft SQL)
Looks like there are lots of fixed length nullable columns. Certain rows have lots of empty columns (ie '' instead of NULL) and that appears to be the problem. I'm going to have to do a manual insert and replace all the ''s with NULLS

Actually, in this case, there aren't lots of variable length columns, but lots of nullable columns. Same difference, though. I'll have a look.
