As of June 2013 I work for Stack Exchange!

I've been a big fan of Stack Exchange since the start. Literally. I was listening to Joel's podcast when he and Mark would talk about this secret project idea they had, I was excided when they finally said what it was, I was in the secret beta, and I've been a big fan since it went live!

The new hotness: Puppet, Linux (CentOS), Mac OS X, Python.

Old and broken (my knowledge is atrophying due to lack of use): Perl, Solaris, FreeBSD.

System administrator, network engineer, time management guru, speaker, author of 3 books, and generally silly person. I wrote "Time Management for System Administrators" from O'Reilly. I co-wrote "The Practice of System and Network Administration".

I work at StackExchange, owner of ServerFault and StackOverflow, but I do not speak for them.

You might want to change the question to be "Recommendations for Internal DNS (split DNS)" to be more clear about what you are looking for.

There are tons of canonical best practice recommendations that can be given without making this a production recommendation.

@HopelessN00b Yes, now LECs will deploy much faster connections. Plus in some areas they have competition from cable companies (which are a whole 'nother mess)

comment Redirecting domain to subfolder of other domain
"I'm fairly new to this, so excuse me if this is a stupid question." Don't worry... we're all new in different ways. I've been a sysadmin for 20 years and I feel "new" when I start learning any new software or hardware system.

comment rsync last 3 days plus weekly backups
To be clear, rsnapshot is just a script that calls rsync. It just does all the complexities of expiring old snapshots for you.
