I am the typical "computer nerd", with skills in a number of programming languages and a wide range of computer hardware and software.

comment Reliable email service for personal use using own domain name
I know it's not fair, but once he edited his question then your answer because [more obviously] wrong. The only way to fix that is to -1 your answer out of the top spot, or for you to edit your answer. There are some discussions on the various meta sites about fixing this phenomenon.

comment Reliable email service for personal use using own domain name
How could an HTTP 500 or 502 possibly be the user's fault? Some users see more downtime with google apps than others. Some accounts have far more downtime. I think it's most likely that Google has one bad machine in a 100-machine cluster, or something similar, so a specific one percent of their users see crappy service while everyone else has no problem.

comment What is the best way to address users storing and streaming music within your company?
@GWLlosa When I purchase a CD, I also have the Fair Use right to format and time shift the contents of that CD for personal use [margin too small for citation]. WHERE I format-shift it to has never been an issue tested in court, but I can't imagine it mattering. I concede the backups point. Easy solution, don't backup mp3 files.

-1 because the bash manpage is one of the hardest to follow that I have to deal with on a regular basis.

comment How can I prevent someone else's name server registration from pointing to my IP addresses? (i.e. change com zone file)
No. tp.com's registrar (who is a second level registrar, not the .com root authority) is the one who says that ns1.tp.com is a nameserver.

So then that's even worse... If someone is still coming to you as ns1.tp.com then they have cached an old response from ns1.tp.com for ns1.tp.com, and you'd be stuck trying to convince a single internet user (or ISP, or whoever) to clear their DNS cache manually.

comment Preventing specific packages from getting installed in Debian
I think you should file a bug report on aptitude. Either "aptitude hold" is not properly setting the selection for the package, or "aptitude install" is not honoring the selection.

Why are you uploading more than 2GB at a time? That is asking for failure-related problems. Even at 100Mb that is multiple minutes of transfer, why not break it into more reasonably sized chunks?
