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 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.
