To maintain the highest level of usable content in the new Communities, I would like Forums users to post your favorite thread URLs. They can be great answers, great explanations, great attachments. These URLs will then be pushed to the top for conversion so they will continue to function. Here's a one of my favorite topics:

That's one of the 3 versions of "Favorite Sysadmin Threads" that Bill mentioned when he opened this thread. I don't think he's counting votes, but you never know.

A great post on how to convert between different power measurements (kVA ot kW):
worth preserving as great info, but also because it's one of the funniest threads we've ever had. Boy we miss Clay's input...
And one blowing my own trumpet - why you shouldn't do heavy sequential IO on system disks (and what to do about it if you really can't avoid it):

@Duncan - KVA vs. KW was one of my farorites too :-)
MY favorite - U.SivaKumar's 'daring question':
also it seems like it was cut very much (?)
U.SivaKumar's 'greatest blunders':

You could consider those a threat to the forum threads, because if folks would just (know where to) read they'd be all set, not needing the forums.

Sorry to re-hash this old thread, but is there a master document or anything similar to that, showing a mapping for these favorite sysadmin scripts and whatever else marked as forum favorites ? The site search, together with being a smidgen better than the ITRC's legacy search engine, still leaves a lot to be desired. I have searched for some keywords that I know existed in the context of the same thread and found nothing.
Thanks in advance for all the help.
