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 How does one prevent a Microsoft workstation from locking?
It's funny cos its true. We've done something similar in our office when a server out of our control had super-restrictive remote desktop timeout policies.

In that case, you could set a GPO and assign it to just that computer that overrides just that property that policy, enable/disable it when necessary? I don't know if it deserved the -1, as it technically did answer the question, just not all the information was provided.

By the time you posted your answer he had already commented that the RAM does not show up in the BIOS. Last I checked, the BIOS is not connected to the kernel in your OS.

comment Opinions on hosting servers in-house
Keeping them cool yes, but < 10 servers in a 1/4 height rack? Putting them in a filing room or something should be fine, they're not going to generate thousands of BTUs and the heat should dissipate fine in a large enough room.

comment Cons of renewing a production SSL on a development server?
I feel your pain with Company X. We're in the same boat. For 7 years their service was fantastic, but in the last 6 months it's become rotten, with a 2 week wait just to change a DNS entry. At least they didn't charge us $50 for it though.

I assume you are talking about taking a snapshot of a virtual machine? You might want to specify some more detail about your platform/software

True, but if the answer to everything was "RTFM" then that would make SF a fairly useless website
