comment What does fast small block random reads and writes do for enterprise SSD?
This is the kind of manufacturer claim that should be treated with extreme skepticism and independent benchmarks. First you need to establish that there is a performance difference between the two that's more than the variance between different manufacturers or models.

comment Can “enterprise” drives be safely replaced by near/midline in some situations?

comment Is open relay to local users the right way to work on port 25?
Well, you could not accept mail (firewall port 25), which is sensible if your users aren't humans reading mail on the machine with 'mutt' or similar UNIX clients and you aren't running imapd etc. What are you trying to achieve with this postfix server?

Note that there are plenty of bad guys scanning the entire IP space for computers they can SSH into. If it's reachable from the public internet, you're going to get people banging on the SSH port.

You can serve the page example.com/bacon in various ways, such as proxying it, but there's a bunch of other issues: which domain gets to get cookies? What is the base URL considered to be for image and CSS requests?

comment Keep a fifo open by shell-script
I don't follow what you're saying; run expect at the top level and have it send data to the process, it handles all the pipe machinery for you. What, ultimately, are you trying to do?
