comment How Does Failover Clustering Work in Windows 2008 R2?
I have a rule about Microsoft services... Don't ask why things are the way they are or how they work... because you'll just go crazy trying to find the answer... I think maybe that applies here...

comment Is it a good idea to back up SQL database to an External USB Hard Drive?
I like the idea of mirroring to solve this issue. I think a great point made is that if you can consolidate the data down to what's actually valuable.

comment What is SQL Server Core Edition?
To confirm my answer, you should download both files and do a binary comparison on the two... if they're identical that should reveal whether my thoughts are correct.

comment Utilize two gateways on the same network same interface with load balancing
What's your use case for load balancing between the two ISPs ? Unless both ISPs are announcing the same public addresses, it could cause undesirable results constantly switching packet paths for certain data types. For example, some online services maintain 'session' based on the remote ip. If this is constantly changing it will create a new session for each ip, or randomly deny the ip which didn't start the original session.

comment Starting a branch office on the other side of the world
Great work @Mark Henderson. As an aside, similar conclusions and advice can be drawn for New Zealand (where I reside). Replace "Telstra" with "Telecom", and "NBN" for "UFB".

comment dns record resolution - weirdness
Can you confirm the computer you're testing from is not infected with something? The DNS queries might be going via some other server without your knowledge. Perhaps setup some packet sniffing using Wireshark?

comment dns record resolution - weirdness
What is the specific record on the domain that you are querying? It could be reserved somehow?

comment dns record resolution - weirdness
Have you manually forced nslookup to query the server with the zone using "server <ip address>"? If this works you may have an issue with the wrong DNS servers set on the computer you're testing from.

comment Serving 10,000 simultaneous users over Wifi
Another vote for Xirrus arrays. The local Microsoft TechEd conference began using them two years ago after miserable wireless failings the previous years. Since then wireless has been impeccable for ~2000 attendees and staff.
