comment Sending Syslog/SNMP information over the internet using standard UDP port 514
I got it working with a VPN, had to set up a scheduled task that would check the status of the VPN and reconnect if disconnected every hour or so.

comment Encrypting configuration on shared IIS7 hosting that uses load balancing
It's not for hiding from the hosing provider, but as a 2nd line when FTP gets compromised or something like that. The documentation on this tool: webconfigenc.codeplex.com was also quite informative (key containers) but as you say, will not help on shared hosting. Thanks for the hashing tip, it helped me to remember that its a standard feature in Forms-authentication so there's no custom code to write other than a small hashing tool used offline (msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/e01fc50a). Adding a salt only requires a minimal change in the login page. I'll be using that :-)

comment Risks of giving developers admin rights to their own PCs
Besides the points that PipTheGeek made, almost all developers have their private set of helper tools that they use in order to be more productive on the job (hotkeys, luanchers, snippet-orgenizers, code generators, grep, Notepad++, etc...) Besides they use sysinternals-tools like process explorer to kill hanging processes. They also need access to eventlogs and other MMC-snap-ins, and use tools like regsvr32.exe to register their COM stuff... the list goes on and on... I cannot imagine doing my job without being at least local admin. Rather kick me off domain, only providing internet access.

comment lock for asp.net developer using vs 2010 and win xp?
Whew, sure glad my boss doesn't require that of me! It would be quite a hassle not being able to copy-paste snippets from MSDN or Stack-Overflow, which especially for trainees may be a frequent action. Be sure to install the MSDN help files locally on the developer machines (a few Gigabytes), then at least they'll have that a a first resource.

comment Information Security Career tracks - Academically vs. IT certifications
Its a bit like that in the Netherlands as well, to a lesser extent. I guess this factor is tightly linked to culture and region. For example: I hardly ever prefix my name with my titles since it looks a bit "puffed up" from my perspective, however I have had colleges that would not hand over a business card if their "hard earned title" were not properly printed on it. It's common practice here for employers to ask their employees explicitly if they want their titles printed on their business cards or not. Any way, a title definitely has effect on the bandwidth of a salary in the Netherlands.

comment Using iframes to sandbox untrusted code
I'm having trouble understanding the problem. It sounds like it's all client-side code (javascript)? What are the third party "views" for if they are in invisible iframes? Is it to enrich data presented elsewhere on the page? Then why not do this on the server side where you'll have much more control?
