comment command line - switch to administrator mode
@AnsgarWiechers: I agree, this is not the right place to discuss it. I think a right closure of this debate can be that disabling UAC entirely is a very lame thing to do. ;)

@AnsgarWiechers: I've already read what you already said :) (repeating yourself (like that it's lame) is not a good argument). Yes, sudo is different, you don't say?! :)) (I only mentioned that because e.g. in terminal you have to type sudo to act as root. Not the best comparison, I admit that. sudo could rather be compared to runas command (the latter is a bit more limited).) I think you didn't understand the main point: the average user WILL NOT create separate accounts for administrative and non-administrative tasks. Why would it be lame to count on it?

@AnsgarWiechers: it's funny that you call UAC a "lame workaround" when it solves the problem of users logged in all the time with a user that is a member of the administrators group. If you did it on XP, all the programs could run with elevated privileges (so they could harm your system too). Now if you DO NOT disable UAC (which is recommended) it's only possible if you explicitly give them these privileges in the UAC popup (if being logged in as part of the admin group, you just don't have to type in the password all the time). Calling it lame is like calling Linux's sudo a lame workaround.

@AnsgarWiechers: I hope this comment was not serious. It seems a bit lame to encourage anyone to disable UAC completely.

comment Resetting salted Drupal admin password
+1, this one really works for Drupal 7, thanks for sharing the hash for mynewpassword! Simply updating the appropriate record (for the user whose password I want to change) in phpMyAdmin with the hash you wrote, and then logging in with the appropriate username and mynewpassword works. Of course, this password should be changed after logging in immediately. :) (By the way, the simple MD5-methods in other answers only worked for <= Drupal 6. Drupal 7 doesn't use this "simple" password storing method anymore.)

Do you really think "something like that" is an answer to the question...?

comment IIS 7 + Tomcat 7 - how to reach http://localhost:8080/my_app under e.g. http://my_app.local
No, unfortunately it's not an option to simply REDIRECT the address, I should serve the content of the site via the 80 port. For example, via IIS, I can serve ASP.NET or PHP pages too, through the 80th port, after installing the FastCGI PHP extension.

comment Securtiy concerns about IIS websites' access rights - Restrict them not to be able to read c:\, etc
OK, thanks, but should I create different user accounts for every AppPools? I want to restrict every websites to their own root and first parent directory, not to be able to read each other's content. Is creating different user accounts for each websites the only solution? And how would I set an app. pool to "be logged in" as a given account? Thanks!
