> Most websites use email as a method of verification. If your email account is compromised, an attacker can easily reset your password on many other websites. By taking control of my domain name at GoDaddy, my attacker was able to control my email.

Adam’s rant on Gawker was spot on. Funny how Lena supports Gawker media with them attacking her just two weeks ago.
Just finished a dense chapter on DNS configuration and now onto Active Directory.
Your ability to remember acronyms is directly proportional to how well you do in IT.
The Unix command tail is the number one binary I wish I had in Windows by default. Powershell’s Get-Content -file c:log.log -Wait just isn’t the same.
Studying for my MCSA in Server 2012 the second chapter really kicked my ass. Being a technician I don’t really run into DNS very often, only setting up A records for domains I own but knowledge of Time To Live is paying off. Set the TTL on my production domains to 300 seconds down from 14400 and will make the migration process so easy.
Been migrating these domains with a loaner XPS 12 from work. Specs are as follows: Model: XPS 12-9Q33 Processor: Intel(R) Core(TM) i7-4500U CPU @ 1.80GHz Memory: 8GB OS: WIndows 8.1 This thing cranks and the touchscreen flips almost effortlessly around the bezel. In the commercials I assumed the laptop was made out of cheap plastic but this is solid. Would recommend. OK, back to work.
Nothing like the control of a VPS to run your sites on. Crazy fast and completely customizable. DNS is taking forever though. Working on bringing my sites back up today and tomorrow.

Plenty of RAM to handle running a bunch of sites for me. May move my git server from Bitbucket.org to a self hosted GitLab setup. Love Bitbucket for the private repositories but a whole private server might work out better.
