comment exchange 2013\office 365 transport rules to block ssn's
@JustinHall 123 45 6789 just passed a SSN that your pattern didn't catch (and yes, some systems use space instead of dash. Also cut-and-paste from some forms). Not saying the rule is completely without value, but this is one of those problems you can't really solve with regular expressions.

comment Blocking another Win 2008 R2 admin from accesing some important folders
The drawback to EFS is that the web server user would need the decryption key (and as I understand it the EFS key is tied up with the user account, so they could just change the web server account password, log in as the web server user, and read the files anyway - though I could be misunderstanding the design there)

comment Active Directory Permissions: Delete vs Move
@jscott TheCleaner added the powershell stuff & the "Protect against accidental deletion" (which didn't exist the last time I touched an AD thing) -- I just know that LDAP/AD moves are "Copy and Delete" actions :-)

comment my LTO2 drive wants to be cleaned repeatedly
@kasperd Well certainly you shouldn't be running a new cleaning tape through the system every cycle, but the other extreme (continuing to use a cleaning tape that's black with magnetic residue it's scrubbed off the head) is certainly ineffective - scrubbing off one layer of magnetic dust to deposit another isn't "cleaning". If you really want to treat your drives well you'll manually clean the head with a foam swab and acetone or ether, but I don't know anyone who's willing to do that regularly.
