comment Windows 7 RC Optimizations for Netbook
I thought that Shadow Copy existed in all versions of Vista and Win7 (used by the OS for restore points, forex), it just isn't available for use by user except in some versions.

In all fairness to the customer Kara, they do have a point. The way your software is written no doubt assumed "Latency is zero", which I see in almost all DB access software.

comment Using Linux IPTables, How to block torrents or any P2P protocols?
One other step involved in that is using Group Policy to push a trusted root certificate for the SSL proxy so it can forge trusted certs.

comment Can I nohup/screen an already-started process?
You actually can change it on most Unixes. It's a disgusting hack. I love it. :) What you do is, connect to the process using debug support like ptrace, then force the process to call dup2() to reconnect 0,1,2 to another filehandle.
