@RichardLeMesurier yes! Epic magnets. + they can hold the shiney platter to the fridge which is fun to spin every time I go to the fridge.

comment How to fix warning about ECDSA host key
@bgoodr it's my opinion & solely based upon setting up my own RAID fileserver several times over the past few years. :/ Crap for answer, but start googling ubuntu debian server and you'll see what I mean.

comment Why doesn't it matter which ports I use on a switch?
So from the outside, all the ports look the same however only a subset support QoS? My question intentionally didn't get into management features. + I'm not playing musical chairs; my VoIP boxes stay on their two ports forever.

+1 this is what I'm asking for! I can imagine advantage to grouping within a module.

comment How to setup VLAN on same subnet as Ethernet
This Q/A made me go read. eth0.10 is a VLAN, as linux can handle 802.11q. (See wiki.ubuntu.com/vlan) I was confusing this with eth0:1, etc, is a virtual interface, which allows the same NIC to have multiple IP addresses.

comment Copy entire file system hierarchy from one drive to another
Genius, thank you. Btw, I ended up using rsync -avxHAWX --numeric-ids --progress / mnt/ but I should have done rsync -avxHAWX --numeric-ids --progress / mnt/ > ~/rsync.out. I suspect pouring the output to the terminal slowed the process. :D
