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.

"unlimited time and patience for an OS that is loaded with a never ending stream of security vulnerabilities" - these sorts of comments are not helpful, at all, in any way, and should be avoided. I see you're also spruking your own product, which means that you're slightly less than un-biased.

comment website uses an invalid security certificate (Error code: ssl_error_bad_cert_domain)
Certs are only about $10 for a basic one, so I dont know about it being cheaper, and it still doesn't fix the problem with multiple sites on the one IP.

comment Is it legal to save user passwords in clear text? How can I convince my client to avoid it?
This is really a question for Stack Overflow, to use a Cipher with a key and salt based on some unique (but not obvious) property of each individual user, so each account has a unique cipher. You can achieve both of the things you and the client want.

Hi Joe, yes we realise they're for evaluation, but for a long-term evaluation 90 days won't cut it! Thanks for the info, I guess we'll find out when the subscription is activated.

comment Installing Windows Server 2008 without a DVD-ROM drive
For this situation maybe, but try getting it onto a Blade Centre where the dongle to plug an optical drive in has been lost and PXE-boot is your only option.

comment Why don't web shops default to HTTPS?
Annnnnnd how are we going to share IP addresses for multiple websites without sharing the keys/certificats around which defeats the purpose of SSL in the first place?
