Whaddya know how to FTP using your Virtual Dedicated server?

Managing a dedicated server is easy and straight forward, this is not the same for "Virtual" Dedicated Server. Let me share with you my experience in Virtual Dedicated Server.
Why move from Dedicated Server to Virtual Dedicated Server? I need to cut hosting cost so I need to move from Dedicated Server (which I am the only user of a server) to Virtual Dedicated Server (which I only get portion of server memory, disk space and bandwidth). Big change huh! Well not exactly, my primary website Hardworking.com is only for my IT Consulting Business (side job) to showcase what I can do for a business or a specific project. So, I think my website will work just fine in Virtual environment.
First of all, where did I get my Virtual Dedicated Server? Go to Moscom.com for a cheaper or discounted price. I've got the economy Virtual Dedicated Server. It took 24-48 hours to setup my virtual server and few technical issues.
Now, let's go manage the Virtual Dedicated Server. I login to my…

Whaddya know how to manage different version of MSSQL Database?

I've asked the question because I have different version of MS SQL databases version 2000 and 2005. I normally managed my database in MSSQL Server 2000 using Enterprise Manager tool and I am using SQL Server Management Studio to manage MSSQL Server 2005 database.

Whaddya know how to convert degrees Fahrenheit to degrees Celcius or vice versa?

Here's a formula to remember.
F = (C) 9/5 + 32 or F = (C) (1.8) + 32
To change this for degrees Celcius result:
F - 32 =  (C) 9/5
(F - 32) 5/9 = C or (F - 32 ) 0.56 = C

For example: Converting degrees Celcius (C) to degrees Fahrenheit (F) Given: C =  32 degrees celcius
Formula: F = (C) 9/5 + 32 or F = (C) (1.8) + 32

Using the given data, the formula will become; F = (32) (1.8) + 32 F = 57.6 + 32 F = 89.6 degrees Fahrenheit, this is a good weather (^_^)
Now converting the degrees Fahrenheit to degrees Celcius: Given: F = 89.6 degrees Fahrenheit
Formula:
From this formula F = (C) 9/5 + 32, we can move the 32 to the other side. In Math, when you move the number to another side, you need to change the sign from positive (+) to negative (-) or vice versa.
F - 32 =  (C) 9/5
we can re-write this formula the same way as shown below:
F - 32 = (C) 9                      __                       5
because we want degrees Celcius result, we need to transfer 9/5 to the other side.
(F - 32)  5   = C               __ 9

or  (F - 3…
