comment How can I format an SD card with a more robust Linux-usable filesystem with a specific cluster size for better write performace?
And my experience is the same as Arnd Bergmann and I was using top of the line SanDisk SD and CF cards as well as Kingston's USB drives. btrfs in SSD mode, ext2, ext4 without journal... they all did deliver sub 100KiB/s performance after partially filling up the device.

@Andreas Sorry, I don't know of any different applications that can do that on Windows.

Read hdparm -Y, hdparm -Z and hdparm -S man sections.

And Windows by default does spin them down when it sees that they don't receive any activity.

Under normal conditions, when the disk had spun down and an application tries to access it, the OS will spin it up to handle the disk access. That's the normal, regular, daily stuff OSs do!

Software has full control on power state of the HDD

comment Aptitude vs. apt-get: Which is the recommended (aka the “right”) tool to use?
The official Debian squeeze documentation explicitly states not to use aptitude for upgrade from Lenny even though it was supported for previous upgrades, so I don't think it's only inertia...

comment Should I wire directly to the basement for ethernet, or have a switch connected to another switch?
It may be somewhat cheaper, but the speed of transmission and quality will suffer. Not to mention the problematic diagnostic of wireless networks.

comment Using different SSDs types (not only SATA based) as system drive
Thanks for the info! I'll probably try one of them when I have some spare cash as all the others have failed. I've added answer with details. SDXC should work as the X61s card slot is a real card slot, not a SD-to-USB adapter, so the SD protocol is used by the OS, not hardware. I have doubts about performance though...

comment Is there a tool that can test what SSL/TLS cipher suites a particular website offers?
Unfortunately it does support only HTTPS on standard port, can't use it to check POP3S, IMAPS or IMAP with TLS

openssl 1.0 needs a change: if [[ "$result" =~ "Cipher :" ]] ; then instead of if [[ "$result" =~ "Cipher is " ]] ; then I also test for SSL2 and secure renegotiation: echo -n Testing ssl2... result=$(echo -n | openssl s_client -ssl2 -connect $SERVER 2>&1) if [[ "$result" =~ "Cipher :" ]] ; then echo supported. INSECURE! else echo no support, OK fi echo -n Testing SSL secure renegotiation... echo -n "" | openssl s_client -connect $SERVER 2>&1 | grep 'Secure Renegotiation'

comment Why do most routers not include local DNS?
providing DHCP and DNS is easier on the CPU than tracking 10k connections from bittorrent client.

I don't plan putting /tmp, /var/log or /home on it and will use btrfs so I think it won't really have problems with limited lifespan.

comment Correctly build Raid1 with a PCI controller card & UBUNTU 10.04 desktop
No, use the controller as just the interface to the disks, build the RAID with mdadm from the start.
