@NanoRaptor I have one of those, up until a few years ago it was my mail server.. I figured IRIX 6.5.22f on MIPS with a custom build of (new) sendmail against gcc10 was going to be unexploitably weird!

Whoever thought YAML was a good idea thought wrong.

#WozADay: Platoon

still not entirely sure who would watch Platoon (1986) and leave the theater thinking “this needs an Apple II video game adaptation”, but here we are

#retrogaming #apple2 #AppleII

Are you serious?! I bought one thing ever from them directly. Ever. About 2 months ago. This is ridiculous, unacceptable. Lack of proper separation of sevices, why are they storing any credit card numbers? (What is the point of a partial? Why store it at all? PCI-DSS anyone?). Where’s any kind of credit services or notice to the credit carriers themselves, just some 8xx number to call. This is just an atrocious response. Oh and this isn’t a screenshot of the email, they sent it as a picture.

@mnemonicoverload @rlaimondas Further, rack servers have no regard for acoustic signature. Server chassis have no consumer acceptability pressure, they're in dedicated facilities and ordered by people who will never even see them. Taking them out of their element can fucking ruin your marriage.

@lattera What has shaken your ZFS beliefs? (I tend to be sympathetic here, I use ZFS semiregularly and frequently stub my toes on bugs, and non-intuitive interactions that I just never do with any other filesystem)

@SwiftOnSecurity If linux doesn't want to be like windows explain systemd

The Borg queen on #StarTrek implies the existence of a middle class of Borg, the Borgeoisie

@kairyssdal Sneakers is the rare movie that seems to only get more accurate and true as time goes on.

@uep @mgerdts I think the key here is that it is a postgres database store, so the recordsize is 8k to align with postgres pagesize, and with ashift of 4k that means BEST case possible compression is 2x, and anything less than 2x is 1x; that means realized compression has to be in the 2.0 to 1.0 range, whereas on the original I was in the 3.x to 4.x range. Math checks out.

@elliot@microscopic.network The goal here is to actually have all of the snapshots mirrored,and I zpool destroy and zpool create between each attempt, so any mystery snapshots would have to be coming from the original machine that only has 4T.

That said, latest experiment was a success, and ashift was the culprit

@mgerdts Now all I have to do is kill the pool... and restore.. again.. the ... 5th? time is the charm?
