I'm a Geek. And stuff.

I'll put more here later. I hope. Maybe.

If you can RDP into it, do that. Also, if you open an MMC under an account that has rights to that server, do so and open services and event viewer (or computer management to do it all at once) to check out the services and logs.

comment Recommended PDF Reader for Windows Terminal Server Environment
+1 to Bart for quirks mode. Adobe is encouraging more lock-in to their products (I hate it but can't criticize...) and making PDFs more likely to not work in alternative products. With that said, I think it's valuable to keep it around in a limited capacity, but roll out something more streamlined for general use. (Read: install but not the default.)

comment SSH: Listen on 2 networks, operating with different rules
Thanks for the clarification, Sirex; +1 to you! I didn't think that it would be necessary to install a second instance, but I don't have a *nix box to try on. Changed "Install" to "Install/Configure"

Unless you need something you can't obtain easily, like long-term support?

comment Why does x86 represent 32bit when x64 represents 64bit?
Yea, I left out the 80186 because I honestly couldn't remember if it had been a released product (and was feeling too lazy to look it up...)

comment Why does x86 represent 32bit when x64 represents 64bit?
x86 comes from the 8086, 286, 386, 486, 586, etc. It could have as easily been "*86"

Good to know, but I don't think that this will be the time for a change in architecture. I'll keep it in mind, however.

That was my initial conclusion as well. I've opened a case with the vendor, following my "we pay support; make it their problem" strategy.
