comment QoS switch messing with local http traffic?
I think I found the culprit. I didn't use a crossover cable to connect to the db machine, but instead used a regular cable. I will try with the right cable as soon as I can get in the DC.

Well we have several machines behind that switch. a PDC and BDC one of which is also fileserv and dns, all those work fine (RDP, DNS, FILES, telnet, etc). Thanks.

comment secondary 2003 server on 2008 domain
Thanks. I don't really care, but I'm trying to get policies to propagate to the client which doesn't seem to be happening. I wasn't clear until I read your answer whether or not there was a master/slave type thing and thought maybe because I was making changes on the new primary DC those changes weren't propagating... Now I know the issue is somewhere else.

comment server 2003 to server 2008 R2 Foundation
Thanks again. Now that the 08 machine is joined, I ran adprep et. al. and the 08 machine is now DC global catalog... IS there a way/should I demote 03? Or would I be better off leaving it? I can't even run dcpromo on 03 as cert svcs are running there which I assume I'd have to move. If this were your shop what would you do?

@mfinni I did manage to get the 08 machine to join the domain. I tried again today, and it seems the few days that have passed cleared out the problem (I should have known to try the usual MSFT toolkit: do nothing and thing's will change inexplicably). I really can't afford to upgrade the 2003 machine; can I still use it as a DC? Does that eve make sense?

comment server 2003 to server 2008 R2 Foundation
@joeqwerty thing is: I don't have too many users. It's just that fumbling around with 2003 for 5 years has led to quite a few stray accounts. I tried deleting the ones that I couldn't identify, but I think there are some created by programs or other ways (IIS installs/uninstalls etc.). I need this server to remain functional so I can't just go all willy-nilly deleting accounts. Thanks!

Yeah, I forgot that I tried this; when I tried to join the existing domain 2008Foundation threw a license error (too many users). Very much shoestring budget--RAID and backups. Thanks...

comment printing directly to (not from) php
The php script would indeed be on linux. But what I am confused about is what is "standard input"? What sends data to printcap? Thanks.

comment printing directly to (not from) php
Does the above-mentioned PHP class alleviate some of that work? I mean does it have to act as a service? Can't it handle a stream and spit that out onto paper? I think I'm missing some fundamentals here... off to google... thanks!

comment Encrypt uploaded pdf files with mcrypt and php
I actually ended up using mcrypt and the file library included in the framework I'm using to do essentially the same thing the filter you linked to does. However, next time I need something similar, I will follow your suggestion--thanks! I've changed the accepted answer to yours because as of today, it is the most correct.
