comment Connecting to a SonicWall VPN from a Linux machine
ps) the latest version of NetExtender can also be downloaded after logging in to http://mysonicwall.com - again YMMV depending on what you own and have registered to your account

comment Connecting to a SonicWall VPN from a Linux machine
NetExtender is the Sonicwall VPN client for desktops (as opposed to an always-on connection, to a satelite office for example). The client does have Linux builds available and works fairly well. If you have the SonicWall Virtual Office enabled on your appliance then you can download the client by going to https://your-sonicwall-public-ip:4433 and logging in with a regular (not "admin") user account. I'm not certain those details are all stock settings, but we've used them a few times on a TZ205 appliance with ~5.8.0+ firmware.

@DarthAndroid sure, but that's a different topic altogether.

comment Am I likely to encounter data loss when using ZFS send to copy a pool to a server without ECC memory?
I agree with your approach. I'm no ZFS guru, but my sense is that the risk of having a zpool on a desktop machine with non-ECC will be lesser than adding the complexity of mounting the remote drives to the server over ethernet. ECC mitigates the less-likely issue of memory corruption--and scrubbing a pool with multiple copies is likely to catch any issues due to drive corruption.

comment How to enable dragging windows with alt-click in gnome 3 / gnome shell
This doesn't appear to work (at least in 3.10), however the Tweak Tool UI controls this setting. It's the Windows > Window Action Key setting

In GNOME 3.10 (possibly earlier) the option is called "Window Action Key" under the Windows section of GNOME Tweak Tool
