I wear many hats at my workplace.

Primarily a Database Developer, but also programmer, web designer, DBA, sysadmin, and general office bitch.

I work for a small custom software house in Sydney, Australia. We use all manner of tools - but mainly MSSQL and a Rapid Application Tool called eDeveloper uniPaaS Magic XPA.

Your question is different enough not to close as duplicate, but the following questions might help you further: serverfault.com/questions/25985/… or serverfault.com/questions/1473/cable-management-policy or serverfault.com/questions/26462/…

Voting to close as "Localised" as this question is no longer relevant given the context of Dell blocking non-dell firmware. (I miss the "No longer relevant" close reason)

comment Running Sharepoint 2010 on the minimum system requirements
thanks for the update. It might not be as bad as I thought. I'll try and free up some capacity and see what's what.

comment What is the minimum architecture required for per-user history logging and password protection on a small network?
If you go out and spend $1000 or more on a firewall (like a Cisco PIX) what you'll find is that it's actually just a normal, rack-mounted server, often several generations old (like a P3 or an 400Mhz FSB Xeon) running a custom operating system. PFSense gives you the Operating System for free, and by using BYO hardware you can have an excellent fully functional corporate level firewall for virutally no hardware costs.

comment Dell PowerEdge Server - What is a Maser Daughter Card?
Well, a daughter-board is something that's often found in Dell Blades, so I guess a "Master" daughter-board might be a daughter-board that's a master for a slave board? I dunno I'm grasping at straws here!

Its gotta be a typo of 'master' but then that begs the question of what a 'master daughter card' does...

comment limit bandwidth and space usage of each Virtual Host?
I absolutally agree that doing it is the best way to learn, and I applaud your initative. However a web hosting company generally has someone who already knows what they're doing, because you don't want to lose everyone's data by accident because you're still learning - even if they haven't paid you any money for it.

comment Old dial up modem noise explanation
Aahh, good old Hackers, circa 1994, where all mad hacks were done from a public phonebooth, a laptop covered in stickers and an acoustic coupler. And not a single person looks at you strangely.
