If I've upgraded PHP on my Mac, should I now avoid all OS X Updates? I'm hosting a website on a Mac mini in a datacenter, and some of my software required a newer version of PHP than what's included out-of-the-box in OS X Mountain Lion. I keep getting the notification saying system updates are ready, and restart to install. But I'm scared it's going to overwrite my PHP upgrades and break everything. And it took me an insanely long time to get the PHP upgrade to work properly and play nicely with OS X Server.

Who should I go through to buy a domain name? New to this part of internet-dom. (Both using MetaFilter and owning digital real estate) My plan is to have a domain name where I can post my as-yet-nonexistant blog as well as build my own personal brand.

I've been invited to emcee a gala dinner for a nonprofit.

Are there any resources out there that can help me narrow down a range to work from?

The company I work for is moving its data storage and processing to the cloud—with the exception of the intranet (which the company’s currently paying to be hosted). There’s a feeling that the intranet should be kept separate from the company’s other documents. What are the options for free intranet hosting? Does such a thing even exist? The current system is very basic, and we really just need 200-300 files (Word, Excel, pdf) to be available in simply displayed categories in an area accessible by staff. Any suggestions?
