comment syncing large files FreeBSD
You probably need SSD drives if this is actually the problem you make it out to be. Basically, from what you have said there IS no real solution to the wait. Now you indicate that your periodic sync slowed the process to disk I/O speeds, which has always been the case in the computer world. The answer is faster disk I/O, there is no other answer.

comment trouble aliasing cd in bash
Just a note - FYI: . and .. are directory names. . == current directory .. == parent directory. Using them as aliases might cause a script somewhere heartburn.

who is probably an alias, which may be why who -m misbehaves. alias who will show you if it is an alias.
