comment 8G RAM and SSD - how big should the swap be?
A SSD is subject to wear, true. Still, you can write 1GB each day for over five years. So optimizing for swap usage is not that big of a deal.

comment Can tar discover the archive format when piping it in via wget?
@FaheemMitha New tar does not need uncompress flag. See askubuntu.com/a/107976/32792 for reference. And as I pointed out in my question: tar with tar xf myarchive.tar.gz. Or tar xf someotherarchive.tar.xz works. Piping them it in from wget is what causes trouble.

comment Can tar discover the archive format when piping it in via wget?
The point of the question was that tar xf does not need any uncompress flag, and I want to achive the exact same thing when piping an archive in from wget.
