I have found it useful to setup more than one ticket per problem, because strangely the answers contradict each other, and at best, at least one person solves the problem while the other inquiry goes awol like the dialogue I paraphrased above. I sympathize with your frustration. When you open a 2nd...

My three Navisite servers have such old software on them and the DSM isn't getting much done to it now, so I think I'm going to get plain boxes and setup cPanel / WHMCS very soon. I was thinking of using Hostworks to do it but Ben sounds awesome. What does everyone here think? Ben handled my migrat...

I use Verizon on an unlimited data plan. Generally good but sometimes slow access (not as bad as you describe; it depends on signal strength.)

The device has it's own phone number so it's on my cell bill but not my cell plan.

About $60/mo.

automated IP WHOIS lookup

I needed WHOIS for a number if IPs to find out their country. CPAN has a great package called Net::Whois::IANA that automates the WHOIS lookup. Here's the PERL code to loop through a text file (file name is iplist.txt, 1 IP on each line) and print results. I only needed the country and regional WHOI...

C++ IDE

What's your favorite C++ IDE (for linux and win)? I'm playing with C++ and coding in a non C++ editor is a pain; lots of jumping around. Microsoft offers an express edition of Visual Studio; is it any good? On the PHP side, Zend's latest version of Studio w/Eclipse (v6.0.1) rocks. They fixed a lot o...

For XP, the hosts file is usually in C:\WINDOWS\system32\DRIVERS\ETC\hosts Typically, the only entry, unless you need overrides to DNS is 127.0.0.1 localhost If you see other entries and want to test removing them, you can comment them out with a hash in the first position, e.g. # this is a comment m2

The best way is for all users who have access to the files use Subversion for checkin/checkout (they don't need FTP to download/upload; Subversion will do that for them.) I believe the file's permissions would also be changed to readonly but I don't know for sure; I don't use strict locking; don't n...

I use Subversion (m) for version control and Tortoise SVN (m) for the windows interface (my repository lives on a linux server but my development systems are windows.) Subversion includes a "strict locking" command. When a file is checked out with strict locking its readonly until it's checked in. m2

I think you can cat /etc/group and pick an GID number over 100. I would get the last GID (over 100) that's listed and increment by 10. (The records aren't incremental, grep for the GID you plan to use to make sure it's available.)
