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 programatically check if a domain is availible?
Hi acidzombie. That was just one URL I found by doing a very quick google. There's plenty of other whois components around, but you need to know which registrar to query.

comment How to manage Microsoft Hyper-V Server 2008 R2?
"Hyper-V was an interesting idea, but not yet ready for real world production use" - ohkay, we run VMWare which does the same stuff as Hyper-V and we have over 30 virtual servers running on a blade centre. Not ready for production use? Riiight

comment No ping localhost after starting RAS service with demand-dial PPPoE connection
Sorry, you're right about the wording. The 'name', not the interface. My mistake!

joeqwerty, the number of things that rely on the loopback interface is massive, MySQL and Tomcat are just two of them.

Sigh. So he does. My apologies. The correct terminology is "SBS 2008 Standard" or "Premium". I'll update my post to reflect this. Sorry it's early in the morning here after newyears!

comment Can I migrate my SSL certificate to windows SBS 2008?
This is because the "CN" or "Common Name" of the certificate has changed, and no provider will permit you to change the CN. Some will allow you to cancel the cert and submit a new one within 7 days but I'm guessing this has well and truely passed for you now...

Man I'm genuinely impressed by some of those fake alerts. How can the average joe be expected to spot them as a fake!? Also I wish our graphic designers could make stuff that looked that good...

^^ Bad answer, these sorts of comments are strongly discouraged on the Server Fault/Stack Overflow/SuperUser sites. The idea is that people come here for answers.
