comment Stress Testing Windows Server 2k8 Box
Well, I plan on having a full burn in run first thing Monday morning. But the problem is the machine is slated to go into production on Monday, and they won't accept "I don't trust it" as a reason for it not going in. So either I need to reproduce the issue, or it'll go into production as is after a brief test on Monday. Until then, everything done must be within windows as I don't have physical access to the machine

comment Protecting against Keep-Dead Denial of service
Pedantic Note: You're never safe. If someone wants to bad enough, they always will be able to get in. Period.

comment 500 Internal Server Error with PHP application
@anthonysomerset: Memory limits would cause PHP to error out and return the error. This type of error is due to a seg-fault or other hard-crash of PHP (where the fastcgi child just goes away). I'm not saying it's not a memory/cache issue, but it's likely something in PHP...

comment Any thoughts on 6 inch ethernet patch cables?
@chris: helped. Definitely helped. Mainly because it was organized enough that I didn't need to go rerouting cables all over the place. Some of them had to be replaced with longer cables, but I had them around anyway (for other uses, 1 and 3 footers)...

comment Any thoughts on 6 inch ethernet patch cables?
@chris: I've never heard of a minimum length (but I'm not an authority on the matter). And I've never had an issue running 1000bTX auto-negotiated over those 6 inch Cat5e patch cables (not a single dropped packet). It shouldn't be an issue at all with that short of a cable (as long as it's a good cable)... And no, I don't have any photos right now (everything needs to be redone after a switch failure required some "jury rigging" of things to get it all to work again...

comment What are the benefits of going with an open source stack?
I'll also add that Proprietary also tends to have higher scaling costs in the long run. So you need to take into account that as well...

comment Using modem for sending voice recording
Well, yes and no. I got it to work on a normal voice modem, but the system that I needed it on only had a win-voice modem. The drivers that were available didn't support voice operations, and the company wanted like $50 for the full driver. So rather than buying a new modem, I just implemented another method. But it is possible (and quite easy, as long as you have the drivers)...
