comment Move a specific number of files to folders from a large pool of files
If the filenames are truly random, or something like a GUID, a common way of doing this is, say for the file ABCDEFG.jpg to move it to \AB\CD\ABCDEFG.jpg

comment Manage Windows Server 2008 R2 Terminal From Windows 8
@CherokeeLakes correct only for "Pro" which is why I mentioned "Once you are on a proper version of Windows" (the basic edition is pretty shit for doing this kind of work on).

comment Incredibly slow snapshot removal
Right, except 6 hours to remove a 5GB snapshot is absurd. As I mentioned, it normally takes around 40 minutes to remove the snapshot, and I even feel that 40 minutes is too damn slow. This was the only snapshot on that VM, and also snapshot removal has changed in later versions of ESXi in that the order that they're removed in doesn't matter too much.

comment When Google DNS (or Open DNS) is a good fit
@Pacerier these days, no. These days I am < 1ms from 8.8.8.8 and 8.8.4.4 but 5.5 years ago (when I wrote that comment), this was not the case.

comment How do I block all BlazingFast.io IP ranges?
There's less than 17 blocks there (some of them are listed 3 times, once as a /23 and then twice as two /24s). What's stopping you from adding one rule per netblock?

comment how does SNAT exactly work in the context of VPN?
Because the NAT device at the destination network keeps a NAT table, and when it translates it back, the VPN server responds on the ARP for the IP address and then the VPN server then tunnels it back to the VPN client. The same as any device on your network contacts the VPN client really.
