Sorry about that mistake. I'm not a FreeBSD expert, I'm someone who is setting up a FreeBSD file server, after 10 years of using Linux. So I'm in the market for a book like this, and of course it is largely useless to me, because of course I'm using ZFS. I was confused by the PC-BSD installer, which *does* default to ZFS.
Slashdot videos: Now with more Slashdot!
We've improved Slashdot's video section; now you can view our video interviews, product close-ups and site visits with all the usual Slashdot options to comment, share, etc. No more walled garden! It's a work in progress -- we hope you'll check it out (Learn more about the recent updates).
Now that ZFS is the default operating system for new installs of FreeBSD 10.x, it sounds like this book documents a lot of hard won technical insights that have been made obsolete by ZFS. Why would I configure RAID 10 for UFS when ZFS provides superior data protection? And so on. It's probably useful for people who have parachuted in and now must maintain a legacy FreeBSD system. It doesn't sound particularly useful for someone who is migrating from Linux to FreeBSD right now, since this is all about how people *used* to configure FreeBSD storage.
They haven't pushed the OTA upgrade to my Nexus 5 yet.

Animals are always the guinea pigs (no pun intended). This is an amazing breakthrough. Surely it's not too long before we have prosthetic limbs for people!
And 15 years ago I bought a massive 2GB drive for $350.
Computer stuff gets cheaper over time. There's no reason the same won't be true for SSDs. At some point SSDs will be cheap enough that even if HDD are still 1/100th of the price, SSDs will still win because of all their other advantages.
Nope, it means you were lucky!
Anyone who contributes money to a Kickstarter project deserves what they get.
(And I have been sucked in the past, so I know how easy it is).
Wait until the product is on the shelf, and then buy it. If it's really that great, it will get made.
So you mean you were doing 80mph in a 45mph limit as well?
I'm not sure taking video of that and putting it on youtube is that good an idea.
Having anything placed under my skull in direct contact with my brain sounds a little invasive to me.
Honestly, I really love the Starts With a Bang blog, and have been reading it for years.
But I do have to wonder why every single post is announced on
We already have RSS, we subscribe, we know about it. By the time
In communist North Korea, darkness finds you!
Drop your weapons. You have 20 seconds to comply.
This is a response to the claim that Gimp can't rotate by an arbitrary number of degrees.
That benchmark is old. OpenMP support for Clang was announced last week.
OpenBSD 10 hasn't been released yet, so it is premature to say that "BSD users are the loser here".
