comment What can I do when my UPS overloads?
@Twisty I know, but I didn't check the label, and I asked specifically to have a UPS capable of supporting 500W... This is what I got sold... first (and last) time I trust them! Now I just bought a Trust Oxxtron 1500VA... this should be ok...

No, my two displays are not connected to the ups, neither printer nor anything else.

comment Is ok to limit writes on SSD/EXT4 by setting commit parameter in fstab?
So changing from default 5 seconds to 30 seconds should increase corruption? You mean only in the case of a power outage, right? Btw I've got a UPS so this should be a quite rare event..

I was reading around a lot of unnecessary writes on SSD are just impacting on the H/W, reducing its lifespan.

comment Should I put the home directories on an SSD?
Thanks, I wanted to do this. What's the point of having and SSD and not using it? My only concern is related to durability, because my 'old OCZ has failed me... wouldn't want neither kernel neither home to disappear... :-)

comment Should I put the home directories on an SSD?
Just bought a 1 TB SSD Samsung 840 EVO. I'll partition on 2 and leave one partition for OS, another for /home then.

comment Should I put the home directories on an SSD?
The OS files should be mainly used in R/O mode, which is fine. Home directories instead are used in very R/W mode; I just wouldn't want to have a broken SSD, where I lose both my OS and home files...

comment How can I install Ubuntu on new hard drive maintaining old home directory?
So should I go for a simple copy and chown after I've installed the new setup?
