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.

comment What does “Flush the Firewall” mean?
Sounds to me like they were just making stuff up to cover their own mistake. I do this regularly.

comment How can I destroy data on a failed hard disk without voiding warranty?
Manufacturers often offer re-conditioned drives where they just replace the component that failed and put them back on the open market. I'm sure someone with enough effort could pull back whatever used to be on that drive before it was sent to the manufacturer.

comment How can I virtualize a Unix machine using VMware?
Hi Alex, please read the documentation. "Unix" isn't a good enough description. Is it FreeBSD? AIX? AT&T System V?

SO/F/U is not the place to be answering with "Google It" links. The idea is that when people google it brings them here.

Hardly. I think this is a real question. Do you want them to pad it with three paragraphs of irrelevant back story?

comment Server Systems under Extreme Environmental Conditions
If I remember correctly, 486 processors are still produced today (well, at least 5 years ago) that have been ruggedised to the point where they can run in insane environmental conditions, like -100 to +500 celcius or somesuch crazy numbers. If I can find a link I'll post it as an answer, rather than conjecture.

comment Looking for a DID (or VoIP-in) number in the Beijing area
We tried to get this in Hong Kong, and we were required to ahve a "Local Presence" (i.e. a physical office) before we could get a number allocated. There are companies that will be your "Local Presence" for you if you run into this problem.

comment Win Server 2K8 - Setting up SMTP Server
Aah, I follow. Yes, that can happen, but usually your email would end up in their junk mail. It might be in your interests to contact the provider to find out which anti-spam service they use so that you can find out why your emails are failing.

comment How to backup VMWare ESXi using free tools?
Uuh, I think you'll find ESXi still runs a Linux kernel... there are plenty of places on the internet that will show you how to enable SSH on the box so you can get a shell...
