I'm a recovering Windows programmer (15 years of C++, C#, SQL Server), but with the help of node.js and Erlang, I'm getting over it.

comment Using .local for internal websites
We have (e.g.) server.ourcompany.com and otherserver.ourcompany.local; not much chance of a collision unless company B is also called "ourcompany". We should probably use (e.g.) otherserver.corp.ourcompany.com, but the decision was made a while back.

comment Virtual Hosts not accessible from another computer on the same network
To add to that: I have a router that forwards port 80 to my public web server; I publish the external IP address of the router in my external DNS. My router can't handle internal traffic attempting to access the external address (it doesn't port forward correctly). So I had to set up internal DNS to mirror (but lie about) the external DNS.

comment Backing up Linux server to Windows server?
Windows Server Backup on Hyper-V doesn't (stupidly) provide for single-file backup. So it'll be difficult to just backup the VHD for the Ubuntu guest.

Looked like it was Live Messenger; I just downloaded and installed the SP directly. That worked fine (on the second attempt).

comment Safely deploying/hosting a virtualized domain containing a DHCP server
We do something similar: the (Microsoft) DHCP server has a configured scope; there's an exclusion that covers the entire scope; then we have reservations so that specific MAC addresses get specific IP addresses.
