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 pointing sub domain to 127.0.0.1:port?
Ok - in that case, you will need to keep the port numbers in your URLs so that the requests are sent to the correct ports. You cannot define ports in DNS - just IP addresses.

comment Enable Ping in Windows Server Firewall?
What is more dumb is that the rule is disabled for the Domain profile, but enabled for Public and Private profiles. Surely most Domain profiles are on networks with a higher existing level of security than those you might deem Private or even Public...

comment Can MS Certificate Services be a Subordinate to CA created with OpenSSL
I was pretty pleased with myself when I realised I could set up a VM without any NICs and just use a virtual floppy drive to get CSRs on and signed certs off. Sneakernet reborn with a 21st Century Virtual shine!

comment Get CLI in vmware-server like xm console
I take it the VMs aren't networked with SSH, otherwise you'd just SSH to them directly right?

Does the appointment show up in Outlook Web Access calendar? Active Sync functionality is quite closely tied to OWA.

comment dead man's switch for remote networking interventions on Linux
I doubt you need to reboot the host - if you do that you will need committed config files in order to have the config come back after reboot, so reboot won't help you recover after a disaster. Try restarting your network service (/sbin/service network restart) instead.
