I'm so disappointed that you beat me to saying that.
If Snowden had revealed that the government was storing meta-data about who went to gun shows, browsed for guns, or anything else related to guns, he would be a national hero.
Can you really generalize that all the internal network must be from the 10.0.0.0/8 block? What prevents those addresses from being used other than convention and router setup. Perhaps they are only for the internal government computers to make them completely invisible to outside networks.
What encrypted messaging app do I use? None. My friends don't use it. I had *one* friend I could talk into installing Telegram. But it's really not "secure" because it saves things on your device, and the desktop version saves things in the clear, so anyone with access to your computer can ready them.
Like another poster said, the other end is your weak link. An open source app might even be worse, because someone could modify their app to say a message was deleted when it wasn't. Or rather, their device could be hacked and a modified app installed.
If WhatsApp really does do E2E encryption, more power to them, but don't assume it's very secure.
I don't know what was meant by the DF comment. FreeBSD has had SMP for ages and it's enabled by default. It also has better filesystem support. DF has "HAMMER", which I don't know much about.
Yes. I must be hungry.
The simple solution to that is embedding wireless charging in your mattress.
Don't be a ZFS hater.
That number would be an estimate of people with Einstein potential. History shows that most of them never fully realize it.
We need a few more Einsteins, I say. But if we start designer babies... Let me be the first to say... Khaaaaan!!!!!!!!!
Houses built in the last 5 years or so usually have cat5 wiring to the phone jacks. And they are probably pulled to a convenient location for a switch. My last home was like that and I rewired the phone for gigabit, got a switch that supported PoE and installed HP intellijack switches on the walls where I needed multiple ports. Worked great. The new owners should be thanking me!
You could add the 3TB drive to the pool, it just wouldn't be a part of the RAID-Z vdev and thus have limited redundancy. It would be RAID-0. But you could survive one failure in the original vdev. Any additional failure or loss of the new drive would result in total loss of data.
So... Backup, destroy pool, restore. Think ahead better the next time. Really, a good SAS JBOD controller is only a couple hundred bucks. Spend the money and plan your storage accordingly.
OP is not talking about adding to a pool but replacing drives (zpool replace is a one-for-one replacement). You are correct in that one cannot add to an existing vdev, only replace drives. But you can add additional vdevs to a pool without a problem. They don't even have to have the same redundancy level (stupid idea).
... would end up being the same as the account password. Or just add a one. Not the answer.
I've been on FreeBSD since 1999, and went "all in" on ZFS about 7 or 8 years ago. I can attest to the robustness of the system; it's incredibly stable. Definitely a reason to look beyond Linux. Most code should be pretty portable unless you are looking in
