comment Setting up subdomain on one .com to point to the subdomain on another .com shows cPanel welcome
@bortzmeyer, I'm out of my element here. Feel free to edit for correctness.

comment Setting up subdomain on one .com to point to the subdomain on another .com shows cPanel welcome
I added it as an add on domain which seemed to work until I clicked a link. That changed the location bar's url to someOtherTLD.com which is less than ideal. If I can't get it to be more seemless with @bortzmeyer's suggestion, I'll switch back to the addon.

Thanks. I knew it had to be something simple I was missing.

comment How do I configure a subdomain to point to a different IP from GoDaddy
@Kyle - I have defined the second server as a A record called Server2. When I attempt to point the CNAME to the new A record, Total DNS control says its not a valid host

no love for Citrix XenServer (also free)?

comment Odd request. iMac physical machine, want to bootcamp to windows native, then run mac os X in VM
@Matt - I understand you want Windows easily accessible - hence the parallels environment which essentially lets you run Windows apps on your OS X install. It's not as fast as running directly via bootcamp but the difference is minimal.

comment Ideal specs for a developer workstations?
+1 for a less powerful test rig - although with enough developer machine oomph you can VM a lower-stat system.

comment How can I properly licence an office?
@Aaroon - you are correct - that was a poor choice of words on my part. I meant to say Volume Licensing.

The default is to remove the message from the server (same as outlook, gmail and others' default pop settings).

comment High Failure Rate of Large Drives?
+1 Try to either space out your purchases, source from different merchants or mix brands in order to alleviate this.

comment Best smartphone for sysadmins?
+1 for the iPhone. It works nicely with Exchange, the app store gets new toys all the time and fewer people laugh at you versus having the ubiquitous BlackBerry Brick stapled to your belt.

comment Password expiration policies
One tact taken at our home office by our most senior infrastructure guy was to suggest the use of funny sentences for passwords for the non-tech oriented folks. I think his example was "IHateHavingToResetMyPasswordEvery45Days" which is certainly easy to remember.

comment Password expiration policies
On site at my current client, walking past the non-technical workers' desks reveals post-it note upon post-it note of passwords. This is in a 90-day environment. The complexity requirements are minimal: 8 char or longer, mixed alpha-numeric. I shudder every time I see florescent colored paper near a monitor now.

comment Power loss at company
+1 for the laptop with its own internet access. In addition to calling for help, you can use this to test that outside items are available beyond your network and inside resources aren't. That was a part of your test plan right? Riiight?

comment Content Management Pros and Cons
Why would static HTML files be easier to implement/secure? I would think that would be akin to granting access to your file system?
