Comment They're really slowing down on adding content. (Score 1) 460

I'm thinking about a 6 month or so "cancel" vacation like I do with HBO Now. Once you've binged through everything you want to see there's really no good reason to just let it keep auto billing. The fact that they're increasing the price without increasing the value makes it all the more attractive.

Comment ZFS (Score 4, Interesting) 303

Having had a few EXT3 filesystems go tits up because they've been quietly borking themselves on a 24/7/365 server being able to do a weekly "zpool scrub" in a 4TB array without the downtime is a beautiful thing. Kernel CIFS with proper ACLs and integration with ZFS snapshots is pretty great as well. When btrfs is released and gets a few miles on it I may switch back. But for now my file server stays OpenSolaris.

Comment Check your employee manual first. (Score 5, Funny) 262

Make sure you don't have a "no moonlighting" clause. I used to work for a company that had one and vigorously enforced it. And I mean Security goon standing next to your desk with a box for your stuff and a quick frog march out the door style enforcement. It's a real bad time to be trashing a steady paycheck.

Comment Good grief. (Score 1) 711

To think I was actually so paranoid that I missed our Datasafe offsite pickup thursday that I drove in, swapped the tapes out and took them home.

Earthquakes, building fires, meteor strikes, Super Volcano blowing. If you don't have offsite backup and redundant offsite servers Murphy's and Finagle's laws are going to spank you. Hard.
