comment which disto to pick for Linode?
Are you going by the screenshot of the distro manager to say which distro's they support? Their FAQ has a more up to date list.

comment can't connect to web server remotely
You're kidding right? S/He doesn't need to supply actual IP addresses - just the topology and whether there are any firewalls in the way.

comment Windows Network Load Balancing on ESX Cluster with Dell PowerConnect stacks
Dell also mentioned a white paper, but never sent it through. I'm not convinced it exists. Can't understand why they haven't got this working with documentation since all the competition has it clearly and publicly documented.

comment How to create a smaller disk size Windows instances on Amazon EC2?
What version of Windows? If you want small you probably need to look elsewhere. You are going to need 30gb if you are running Windows 2008.

comment What is the best network topology for a small sized school network?
When you say small - how small? How many devices on your network? How are these physically and logically arranged? It may make sense to split up into subnets based on location, or department, but it really depends on your specific size. Also, you say you want to improve it. What sort of problems are you looking to fix? If it isn't broken don't fix it.

comment Monitoring routes, hops
It's a script you can easily edit. For example, perhaps you know your preferred route. Instead of grepping the latency, you could grep for your preferred route, and raise an alert if it changes. You don't even need Nagios to use this script. You can just use cron to run the script and do something with the output. I'm not sure if this is going to help you solve your problem - from your question it sounds like you just want to know when the route changes so you can do further manual checks to trace the problem.

comment Limit access to web site when bandwidth reaches limit
Do you happen to know whether mod_bandwidth reduces the bandwidth for each connection, allowing further connections, or if it prevents further connections once the bandwidth limit is reached. The docs/FAQ don't make this clear. I'm after the latter.

comment Limit access to web site when bandwidth reaches limit
Hosting the files separately is a good option - although a standard hosting package may use a server less capable/more congested than my VPS. Unfortunately (actually fortunately) my service provider has not yet implemented bandwidth monitoring/reporting for their VPS system.

comment Limit access to web site when bandwidth reaches limit
CDN is an expense I don't want to incurr at this stage. If things get exciting then I'll consider it, but right now I am looking to avoid any such investment till it looks like I really need it.
