comment Incoming mail from sender, MX record won't accept replies. How to block the incoming SMTP connection from that sender?
While it is totally bogus to reject an entire range of IP addresses based on the fact that they are ADSL, it is equally bogus to reject an entire class of senders who reject you. Two wrongs and all that...

So basically, the next time I fat finger my mail server and accidentally break inbound mail, you'll compound the situation by rejecting my outgoing mail too?

comment is mod_deflate 's default configuration ok to use in a production setup?
It certainly won't hurt to use that in a production setup, but it looks pretty conservative, and is probably based on reality as it stood several years ago. I'm hoping the super-geniuses here will post an "optimal" mod_deflate configuration for today's world.

comment Taking this, and making that
This will probably get moved over to Stack Overflow, and then closed as a duplicate of stackoverflow.com/questions/1513861/…. I had to strongly resist the urge to simply copy and paste the accepted answer over there to this thread, just for the potential rep points, but that would be cheating, IMHO.

comment Ethernet NC lines and Switches
@Evan Anderson "I don't know what I was thinking (other than not thinking) when I made that comment." covers a majority of my comments, and a few of my answers, unfortunately. It is nice to know that I'm not the only one.

@Evan Anderson Actually, full duplex operation with 10BASE-T or 100BASE-TX still only uses two of the 4 pairs.

comment VMware view for Remote Non Admin Users
Is this question about the "VMware View" product (vmware.com/products/view)? Or is it about "viewing VMware"?
