comment Recover LVM with software raid
Before doing anything with a drive, I would make a low-level copy of that drive (using dd). Then you can freely experiment with the copy, without risking losing more data.

comment How can I make hourly backups from my Synology NAS to my LaCie NAS?
Even though bup looks really cool, they themselves mention that the project is not quite mature yet. So I'm hesitant to use it for something as important as backups. Also, using a mounted network drive will make most tools go into 'local' mode, thereby eliminating optimizations regarding reading of data. I was really hoping to somehow use the rsync daemon that's running on the LaCie nas.

Although this works, I'm not marking this answer as accepted. There are two disadvantages: 1) the disk space limitation, obviously and 2) the NAS's have to be physically close to each other.

comment How do I use the awesome window manager?
Note to people reading this in 2014: the first link refers to an old version of Awesome. Awesome has replaced ini files with the Lua language for ita configuration.
