comment Encrypted disk filesystem compatibilities
thanks a lot! I'm using Linux since the early days of Slackware but it's the first time I'm using this encryption thinggy and the first time I'm using LVM so it's all new to me : ) It's clearer now and I'll read more on all this.

comment Cannot switch to console anymore after using Alt_R as mod4
Ivan Zakharyasch: thanks a lot... I got your xmodmap / xkb point! I ended up doing something very similar, only using xkb. No more xmodmap here : )

comment Which of VPN or IPSec or xxx can I use here?
@derobert: I think I'll go the OpenVPN route then. I'll first test with spare machines before doing the "real thing" on production systems.

comment Which of VPN or IPSec or xxx can I use here?
@derobert: sadly I need to use commercial apps using a lot of (mostly undocumented) ports and this is outside my control. In other words: I need to use/test these apps and they require several ports.

comment How to find which process is regularly writing to disk?
that you can't query SMART readings without spinning up the drive leaves me speechless :-/ Now obviously the "spinning down" issue can become quite complicated. Regarding disabling the spinning down: wouldn't that in itself cause the HD to wear out faster? I mean: it's never ever "resting" as long as the system is on then?
