The servers are Linux, not Microsoft, so I highly doubt they'd have any support for .NET.

They could possibly have Mono running to support .NET on their servers, but yeah, that's another can of worms.

Most likely because there is no A record for the domain name by itself. Part of your zone file should look something like this: www IN A xxx.xxx.xxx.xxx site.com.au. IN A xxx.xxx.xxx.xxx I would of said it should look something like: www IN A xxx.xxx.xxx.xxx <leave this blank> IN A xxx.xxx.xxx.xxx ...

DBligh, No, you wont have to pay ongoing line rental costs. I think I'm just having a problem of some sort. What you will need if you're moving into a new house, is a working Telstra phone line that Exetel can setup the ADSL on and then cancel. This means you may have to pay a Telstra connection fe...

I actually wanted to know a bit more about this "Naked" ADSL. I'm moving out soon and have no need for a landline to make calls from, I just use my mobile. But I'm not sure how this works. If I sign up for this and get Naked ADSL, does this mean I still need to have a telstra line to the place? The ...

I have set this up this type of notification system for our company and already some of the benefits are really showing.
Could you give us a ballpark figure of how much it would cost to cover 20, 000 users with this type of service?

Partial 'Yes' vote from me. There is a definite cost involved for exetel, and being a 'no frills' type of ISP, I believe this type of notification wont suit them. However, there could be an option on applying for Exetel ADSL to recieve the SMS notification, at a price of say, $3 a month. Current use...

Here is my rub in. I have a backup Optus Cable internet connection. If exetel ever drops out (only had to use it once or twice in this situation) I just enable my spare network card, and I have the cable connection networked to my computer (This is the family's connection, but what they dont know ca...

If there are major picture issues on the 8ms why bother? If you go for the 8ms and the quality is poor, then go and exchange it back for the 12ms. I just think that when people say that there are major picture issues, its usually not that bad. As closer said, 12 is still fine for games. At work our...

If you're a gamer, and play high demand games, I'd say go for the 8ms, the visual issues are probably very superficial (otherwise BenQ wouldnt put the product on the market) and not too noticeable. Then you get the benefit of a quicker response time. However, if you're not using it for gaming or mov...
