comment Does Linux really need Anti-Virus (other than hosted file scanning)
The likelyhood of a properly configured and maintained server of any sort being hit by a virus is extremely low. Windows, Linux, MacOSX, it doesn't matter. If you are competetent at managing your systems, there should be no reason for a virus to be present on the system. That being said, if there is a client who wants it, and it causes not a lot of trouble, then you may want it, depending on how much the client is paying for it.

comment Database server: Small quick RAM or large slow RAM?
This is very important info. If the database is only 5GB and isn't planned to get much bigger, then you might as well go with a smaller amount of faster RAM.

comment Calculate MD5 checksum of a directory
You may also want to look into using diff to compare directories which will actually show you where the directories differ. unixtutorial.org/2008/06/how-to-compare-directories-in-unix

comment Calculate MD5 checksum of a directory
Technically one could get the same hash for different directories. If dir A had 2 files with contents 'ab' and 'c' and dir B had 2 files with contents 'a' and 'bc' then hashing only the data in the files would yield the same results, even though they have files with different contents. I'm not even sure how one would define the MD5Sum of a directory.

comment How do I unblock NTP on a Netgear FVS318g
Good work around. I thought I had tried that, but for some reason it didn't seem to work. Maybe I'll try again. I filed a support ticket with Netgear, and they responded. They said I should downgrade the firmware, which is what I ended up doing in the end. Since there wasn't any major security issues, that were being addressed, I figured I wasn't getting much from the updated firmware. The interesting part is that in the firmware upgrade, the actually site this as bug fix that you can't assign ports under 1024, but that is, as they admitted in my support request, a big mistake.

comment Can you share a single login / desktop session between multiple accounts?
Is anything written to the event log when a user starts shadowing, and stops shadowing a specific user? Basically, we want to just be able to access a log of who logged in when.

comment MYSQL Scheduled backups?
First link wasn't there when I downvoted. It's getting increasingly annoying that edits aren't saved if done within 5 minutes of eachother. I've seen many instances of people completely changing their answer after the mistakes are pointed out to them.
