comment SAS vs SSD Performance
To put some numbers in: SAS drives: maybe 500 IOPS if you are lucky. SSD: 50.000 are not unheard of. Factor of 100 times faster.

comment How to look at what is going on in a pegged SQL Server instance?
Disabled admin connection, firewall, anything like that. Did you actually bother to read the error message and do what it say (check the error log for the port number)?

comment server 2008 vpn
What exactly DID you do? "accordint to some tutorials" does not tell us waht crap tehy may have contained. Or what configurations of the firewall or the RRAS port filter, to make the setup "safer" which now blocky functionality for you.

That said it will likely suck. Totally. YOu are better off moving your minecraft server to a virtual machine you rent. And likely cheaper off, too.

comment Replicate content across IIS farm, *not* on a domain
The best way iyss to install a domain. This is what MS hsoting recommedation (iis.net) says. Scalble hosting approach outside of MS recommendations without in depth knowledge is not a decent approach.

comment Permission denied to create files on root of C: Windows Server 2008 R2
+1. Why being SO lazy - just put a FOLDER there. One folder, 5 seconds work. And the problem goes away.
