comment What are the drawbacks of running a database inside a virtual machine? How do I overcome them?
@Shane Madden - Can you please explain the closure a bit? I expect that the motivation was driven by one non-specific answer (which then got derailed in the comments), not the question itself. Regarding the question, 44 votes and 12 favorites within roughly one day of pre-closure existence implies to me that it was a good question with useful answers/information (especially compared to what seems to be typical for ServerFault question traffic). This is what the various SE sites are aiming at. Would you have preferred a more specific question phrasing, vs the loose "how bad is it?".

comment How to increase the size of a VirtualBox Disk Image
Worth noting: this can only increase the size of vdi drives (not decrease), and only of dynamically sized drives.

One less contender... www.everydns.com is merging with dyndns.com

comment Can you Recommend Free DNS Name Servers?
I've been using zoneedit for many years, but arrived here because I'm looking for an alternative. The old "looks like ass" interface was fantastically functional and easy to use. They "upgraded" the interface a while ago and it is now extremely painful and slow. Also, a week or so ago I had a complete DNS failure... I have two in place (ns7 and ns12.zoneedit.com) and they both were toast. I can't take it anymore, so I'm switching.
