comment Enable FTP Publishing on IIS7?
As I said, "add FTP publishing" doesn't show in the actions pane in iis manager, though the service is installed and running.

comment Migrating from Windows stack to LAMP
I understand this from an admin point of view. But, you're not talking about a new app on rails, but an existing, apparently successful app that, I assume, provides business value. Rewriting is almost never a good idea. Keep the systems in isolation, leverage the skills you're acquiring. I work for a large company that's managed to work this our, and we're stronger for nit having limited ourselves to the limitations of either platform. There is no 1:1 correlation between lamp and the ms stack. Assuming that there us will be a lot more painful than the alternative.

I should clarify: ignoring the qualifications or benefits of each community, you're not talking about porting , but rewriting. The devs may say "I can do that" (they want to keep their jobs), but this is like trying to make an F16 mechanic work on a Lamborghini. Hiring a dedicated ms stack admin will be WAY cheaper than hiring a new dev staff, or retraining, which isn't going to work with these two vastly different sets. Look up Newton and Liebniz for a good analogy.

Excellent point. I was trying to highlight the shoot-oneself-in-the-foot aspect of the proposal. Excellent post. You should really write a paper for a mag or conference.

Begs the question, what's the point in acquiring the company if you're just going to rewrite everything? Asp.net and php are nearly orthogonal in terms of dev methods.

Oh, god. Why on earth would you do that? Get ready to hire a new, prepubescent dev staff.

comment Programmer configuring a new network
That's exactly what I needed. I may be able to get Ethernet coming straight from the optical terminator (bypassing the coax), in which case I might plug up the 3600 just to play with it. I want the pix in place because the software firewall I've been using is constantly interfering with some internal apps I have running, and I don't want to have to maintain that on 6 different machines. Thanks!
