comment Are disks interchangeable in a mirrored RAID setup?
+1, thanks a lot for the detailed explanation and the caveat about the old mkraid and /etc/raidtab doscs! It's a bit clearer now. I'm still not sure if it's worth to configure on my desktop / workstation but I'll look into it.

comment What's the difference between SSH and Squid when using them as proxies?
+1, thanks a lot for this detailed answer! I don't absolutely need to hide my real IP: I take it that that "ssh -D ..." SOCKS method is good enough. I haven't found a way to make it work yet under Chrome but from Firefox it's fine.

comment How to take sha-1, sha-256 or MD5 of CDs / DVDs?
thanks a lot, using cmp I've been able to compare the .iso and the DVD and, indeed, it ends "correctly" with an EOF. Now I understand better what's going on : )

comment How to take sha-1, sha-256 or MD5 of CDs / DVDs?
+1... oh gotcha and thanks a lot. So I may be taking into account trailing zero bytes or garbage. I'll see if I can use cmp instead. (now to be honest I don't know what's more obfuscated between using the pipe symbol and </dev/sr0 ) ; )

comment SVN wants to commit everything after server re-install
oh damn... Years of Git ended up corrupting me. I was 100% I could just tar all the SVN repos and that it was enough : ) Will try the svnadmin dump/load too.

comment SVN wants to commit everything after server re-install
@derobert: (and jofel) : I don't have any old projects checked out on my system (I don't work on these, I just helped configure the server). The devs are remotely located, I'll ask them to try "svn status" (but they're not super experienced with SVN, nor am I, they simply use it from Eclipse). Good to know it's purely a client-side decision: it's weird because one dev told me he compared the files and they were identical, yet Eclipse / SVN wanted everything to be commited again. I'll have them "svn status" and report to me : )
