I work at a large international development charity in London, as International Operations Manager. I manage a team of Regional ICT Service Managers, based in developing world countries, who keep our users happy through fixing problems, setting up great connectivity and generally making sure users can do their day jobs.

I previously worked at the same place as International Network Systems Analyst. I looked after a bunch of ICT systems in offices in the developing world, as well as looking after systems in our HQ. I gained a lot of knowledge in that job, and the techy side competes with the people stuff in the new role, hence I still hang out here a lot.

I'm passionate about the use of ICT in developing countries, both in terms of dealing with the inherent problems for ICT in those places, and using ICT as a tool for development.

comment Cisco VPN endpoints disconnecting from a VLAN
My config is almost exactly the same. Only missing the management tunnel line. Each VLAN we have gets a subnet, so I expect you are right on that count. So are you saying that each subnet gets its own tunnel, and for some reason that is timing out? Interestingly, we have lost this problem on one of the ASAs by removing a cheap router from the equation. The D-link used to be connected in between the ASA and the ISP equipment. Now the ASA connects directly to the ISP equipment, and the problem has gone. In some cases the cheap routers is the ISP equipment though, so not quite as easy.

Unfortunately, the rewriter at www.iis.net seems to be only for IIS7 - we're still in IIS6 land as far as our Sharepoint infrastructure is concerned.

When you talk about the long terms scan and update - are you suggesting there is some way of fixing links within Office documents stored in Sharepoint?

comment Configuring subdomain using apache virtualhost problem
That looks ok to me. The config file you are using is definitely the one that Apache is using right? You've cleared the cache in your browser? You haven't set ServerName or ServerAlias anywhere else in the config?

Remember that in DNS www.domain.com is different from domain.com unless you are using wildcards.

comment ESX(i) Interface Bonding ala Linux?
That sounds super simple indeed. I guess that this only works for redundancy - can you do bonding where each interface is connected to a different switch. vSwitches are only on vSphere (ESX 4.0) right? Gotta upgrade our clusters!

comment sendmail vs smtp server
+1 keep it as simple as possible, unless you know a good reason to make it more complex. If you do have a good reason, get postfix, buy a book on it, and learn all about MTAs.

comment Dealing with moved documents and sites in Sharepoint
Those articles discuss moving sites between content databases, which doesn't necessarily result in changed URLs. We want to change the URLs so they reflect the site and organisational structure, yet make sure as few links as possible break (or handle broken links in a user friendly way).
