I've worked in IT since 1998, gaining experience in every aspect of technology along the way. From building computers and fielding customer support calls, I went on to deploy VPNs and manage CRM systems, set up and manage an ISP and two data centers, re-architect several large websites, and write software for DOJ, CBP, US Army, Cooke Communications, and many others.

I'm now working as a full-time .NET developer for IOTA Solutions, but also playing a major role in driving and implementing new technology for the company. In my spare time, I debug and play with a lot of open-source software on both Windows and Linux.

comment How to deal with users passwords on website re-design?
You're correct, Drupal 6 uses MD5 with no salt. If OpenCart 1.5 does the same then yes, you can just copy the hashes - they're nothing more than fixed-length strings.

@ink, I've been with dreamhost.com for about 5 years and have zero complaints or desire to move. And this is coming from someone who was CTO of a web hosting company.

comment Home Domain router question
@user3590149 - the answer is not related to DNS. It explains what to do with the hostnames after DNS resolves them to your IP address. When you request a website using a browser, it sends the hostname as a HTTP 1.1 header even though it already knows the IP so the web server knows which site you are requesting. This is known as "virtual hosting" and is the most efficient way to use a single IP address for multiple domains.
