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 creating decision tree based troubleshooting documentation?
Be very careful how you tread here. There's a very good article over on Joel on Software here: joelonsoftware.com/articles/fog0000000024.html that you might want to read. The part that's relevant is about half way down, about "The Methodology".

comment Negative aspects of hiding file extensions in Windows
I remember Windows 98 Plus! pack had that "mouse distance" feature. I don't know about others but I use the Win key more regularly than I use the Alt key I think (Win+E, Win+R, Win+D, Win+F)

@Johannes, I didn't know this, thanks for the tip. @John, I belive the Disk Cleanup wizard will empty it out, but good point.

comment Negative aspects of hiding file extensions in Windows
I find two "features" of that tool very... interesting: "Disable Windows key" (the only useful thing Microsoft has contributed to the hardware arena), and "Calculate Moon's age" - wtf?

comment Exponential backoff algorithm
To whoever marked this as smells-like-homework, homework questions ARE permitted (see meta.stackexchange.com/questions/10811/…), but the answer should be treated differently, perhaps by giving all the pieces to the puzzle, but not the actual answer. See also here: meta.stackexchange.com/questions/34503/…

comment nslookup for SRV records (or any non-A records) in non-interactive mode
nslookup -q=MX serverfault.com also works (except, replace MX with SRV and whatnot)

comment Alternative to Remote Desktop that doesn't interrupt user sessions
VNC does not create a new desktop, it interacts with the existing desktop on Windows, which is exactly what the op doesn't want.

comment Clear 'to' list in Outlook 2003
Probably the easiest thing to do :) And google-fu is difficult for such an obtuse topic, especially when one doesn't have the EXACT terminology.
