This past weekend, Mr. Denny joked that he feels like he’s the only one answering questions around IT Knowledge Exchange. Prove him wrong; share your IT expertise over at IT answers! Sharing your knowledge gets you knowledge points, street cred, and possibly a spot amongst our featured member elite.

1. Mr. Denny, Jinteik, and Stevesz gave some advice on how to stop a DDOS attack without changing IP addresses.

2. Mr. Denny provided a document to help a user find the upgrade path for Windows 2000 Advanced Server to Windows Server 2008 R2.

3. Check out the conversion tool Mr. Denny suggested for migrating a MySQL database to SQL 2005.

4. If you’re setting up a second Active Directory server for backup and load balancing, follow Mr. Denny’s easy how-to.
