top US College Students Still Aren't All That Interested In Computer Science
I would think that a lot of the required classes for a Network Systems Administration degree would be the same for a CS degree...why not look into what it would take to obtain a CS degree?
top A Year After Sandy, Do You Approach Disaster Differently?
Were the communcation/data lines down? If they weren't, why not shut the servers down remotely?
top Shuttleworth: Apple Will Merge Mac and iPhone
At some point, the CPU's built into phones will be powerful enough to handle most desktop applications for businesses without a noticeable performance hit. We're not quite there yet, though. Maybe in three or four more years, perhaps.

top Microsoft Files Dispute Against Current Owner of XboxOne.com
I have had domains for private services such as databases(accepts request only from a list of IP's), file servers, and messaging services. I also use them for dynamic addresses.
My general rule of thumb as far as user id's: If your id is higher then mine I will give you toss it up to the member being young and ignorant about a topic when they overlook something simple. If there id is lower then mine they should be at least my age, and have a decent background on technology and its history as they lived it.
Why didn't you use subdomains (for example, database.yourdomain.com) as an alternative to purchasing & registering a full domain?

top Ask Slashdot: New To Linux; Which Distro?
My recommendation would be to try several different distros in virtual machines until you come across one you like, then do a clean install (or a v2p if you're well versed in virtualization). Even after picking a primary distro, you'll probably want to keep a couple of vm's with different Linux flavors around in case you apply for a job where they use a different distro from what you're running at home.

top Nokia Apologizes For Misleading Lumia 920 Ad
At least in the US, the primary food being advertised has to be real, however there are still loopholes (e.g., in a cereal ad the cereal has to be real, but the "milk" can be glue or paste).
