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.

That means that the problem does not lie in the SQL itself, butrather somewhere else upstream...

Even if you're not reselling, it looks a lot more professional if you're a SAAS provider, or work in the IT industry where people are likely to be whois'ing you.

comment Why would internet explorer conflict with lighttpd/mod_compress?
Actually, never mind, I see from your code that you're only compressing static text content. My apologies.

comment Why would internet explorer conflict with lighttpd/mod_compress?
Not really on-topic but if you look at the performance gains of gzipping JPG's you'll find it actually slows the process down. GZipping a JPG gives you zero size benefit, and the additional overhead of compression/decompression. A jpg is already very heavilly compressed.

comment Communicating via Command Mode with IBM HS22 IMM via AMM
This has to be about the most technical question I've ever seen asked here. Perhaps it's something for an IBM technician to answer?

comment Using MarkMonitor.com for DNS Management Services
I found DynDNS exceptionally expensive for hosting multiple zones. We pay $60/year for 10 zones with our current provider. DynDNS wanted to charge almost 10x that amount...
