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.

Time for a better virus scanner perhaps? One that doesn't require the user to be logged off in the middle of the night and loose everything that they might have open on their desktop so when they come back the next morning they have to spend 10 minutes re-opening all their programs...

Wow, that's a fantastic program. I'm surprised there aren't more FOSS tools like this!

This is not the place for religious rants or stereotyping. Your answer might be valid, but that's not the way to present it.

comment Sniffing at work- How to detect
Funny you should mention that. A bunch of employees at a prison in Sydney are taking their employer to court because they were disciplined and were about to be fired because they posted highly un-professional messages about their boss on a public Facebook group. So, depending on where you live, you may not have that right. I doubt that people in China have the right to rag on their prime minister... everything is relative.

Nope. Nothing you ever do on the internet can be guaranteed as 100% safe. Gmail itself is actually completely un-encrypted. It's only the login and authentication procedure that is encrypted. Check the URL that your gmail page is sitting on...

comment Would you install Exchange and Active Directory on a single MS Virtual Server?
I KNEW someone would say that. The hypervisor might be free, but take a look at the rest of the prices. VMWare is NOT free if you want to use it properly, or have backups, or any sort of redundancy.

comment Optimal Disk setup for SQL Server
Pity, because SAS drives have the great ability to order the request queue not sequentially, but in the order that they appear on the current revolution of the disk. So 4 random reads that are after eachother on the disk platter will only take 1 RPM to retrieve, whereas on a SATA disk it takes 4. I know what you mean about SAS though, who wants to pay $800 for a 74gb drive

Probably don't need RAID10 for the OS and SQL binaries either. Once they're in memory they won't be touched much.
