comment How do I specify a driver disk image that is on the local cdrom?
I've read all that. I'm trying to figure out if I can use the CDROM media as a source for the driver disk (image) in addition to being the OS source disk.

comment How do I specify a driver disk image that is on the local cdrom?
In this case we're shipping media to customers. I really would like it all on a single disc. I can have a driver disk image (as a self-contained .img file) on a USB stick and it works, I don't get why I can't do the same with the CD. So frustrating. Thanks for your input.

comment mounting ntfs usb drive in linux (with permissioning)
I don't think any of the NTFS implementations support Linux permissions on NTFS volumes. Everything is exposed as belonging to a single user.

I'd be looking at fixing the share security on the networking side, vs. trying to fix it this way.

By the way, there is absolutely a 2 TB per-VMDK limit even in the most recent versions of ESX(i).

comment Tracerouting www.nasa.gov from different places yields different ip destinations - why?
Akamai runs the DNS for these sites, and their code chooses a geographically appropriate mirror based on your location, latency, etc.

comment Proposal for a new EICAR format that covers engine up-to-dateness
If your AV deployment is not giving you the visibility you need, then you need a different deployment or a different vendor.

comment Why is php-firewall blocking these ip ranges, isp's and host's? where can I found the blacklist?
This isn't really a development question. But, as a developer for a security software company: this script is useless. It contains arbitrary (hard coded) blocklists, is entirely munged into a single script (maintenance nightmare), and provides a false sense of security. And it has basically no documentation, so you don't realize what it's trying (or not trying) to do.

comment An unsolvable DNS situation?
You configure split DNS on your DNS server. You serve up different responses based on where the request comes from. All requests come in there, different responses come back based on where you are.

Are you trying to stand up a HTTPS server, or are you trying to actually write one?

No, I'm not sure, I had a hard time figuring out which items to use and which were not deprecated. I'll check this out. Thanks.

comment How would I / could I obtain an reasonably comprehensive list of domain names?
Some stats here: domaintools.com/internet-statistics 117M active domains. If you just need domains and not hosts, then your source data is WHOIS and not individual DNS servers.

This is probably related to the ulimit settings (ulimit -n)

comment how to speed up a database - hardware only
Maybe. Maybe not. Depends on the OS and memory management limitations of said OS, and similarly of those capabilities of the SQL engine.

comment how to speed up a database - hardware only
What database software? What platform? How large is "very very large"? What optimizations have been done (I'm sure you haven't thought of all of them.)
