Making Backups of What’s Recent
You probably don’t need to backup your whole hard drive every day. Just back up what you changed recently.
Ubuntu 15.10 and ZFS
Some quick thots on doing this for my workstation: I have six 2TB drives in raid 10 zfs pool, and they would not import to 15.10 because 15.10 ships with (or tries to) zfs 0.6.4.2 I decided on /boot, swap, /, mdadm partitions for OS install needed to do 15.10 server cmdline install for mdadm…
ZFS on Linux machine
Here is my ZFS on Linux story, and some of you might have seen these pictures when I started this project last year: I recycled an old Athlon system from work and placed an 35 Watt AMD A2 processor with 8GB 1600 ram on an Asus mobo in it. I name my home systems after…
Happy Penguins at LinuxFest Northwest 2014 Party
I felt like I had a lot of camera issues at the start (which first was needing to go back home in order to retrieve all my SD cards, pppt.) Indoor pictures are always difficult, and as such, to make these look less like snapshots, I squirted a lot of Sriracha on these. Here are…
PH7 Engine – is it really the fix?
This sounds very useful, especially if you consider that PHP is used in embedded environments like MonoWall and pfSense. My big question for larger installation is this: xcache already does a great job at bytecode caching. The largest slowdown in the majority of PHP applications is the relational engine sitting underneath it. After much profiling…

Disk Performance Analysis on Linux
Really Into the Guts of LinuxIt is possible to find out how hard your disks are running. Some you don’t want to run as hard as others. For instance, if you wanted to save on write cycles for your SSD you could move small frequent writes into a ram filesystem, and that seems to be…
Sorting through thousands of photos
Backups are great. Having terabytes of of space for them is now completely necessary. Filling up those terabytes is …frustrating. My photo collection is probably much like many photo enthusiast’s — well into the hundreds of thousands of pictures. But why is it so? I make thumbnails (that’s 2x pictures), I keep a low-res and…
Make, classpaths and environment variables
Make, Ant and probably any other build language (and/or toolkit, since Ant is not much in the way of a language) are tricky bastards. I’ve been maintaining a parallel set of build scripts for a Java and C++ project for a few years now, and this has been great practice in getting my Make chops…
Backups: Using `find` Across a Panalopy of Directories
I love using the find command. In DOS, find is like grep. In Linux, find is the most powerful recursive DOS dir /s or Linux ls -r command you could ever put your saddle on. One of the things you can do with find is to avoid directories, using the -prune switch. Like so: find…
