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 duplicate video stream using a router (?)
I take it you want to do this to save on bandwidth? 30 people all watching the same stream = 30 lots of data, rather than just one? There may be other ways around this (interim streaming server that does it on the fly with no delay)...

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?
