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.

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?

comment File Specific cache http header for IIS 6
If you want to disable cache (which the OP does), you need to set the expiry to a date less than today (say, yesterday, or 1990 or something)

comment Broken remote desktop connections
We saw this problem on-and-off on a particular Windows 2003 Terminal Server with Vista clients. Eventually we migrated everyone off the server and re-commissioned it.
