comment Encrypted offsite backup using GPG with private key never on backup server?
GPG uses a per-message symmetric secret ("session key") that is different for each message encrypted. It is this symmetric key that technically needs to be on the machine that decrypt the respective message. I want to keep the GPG (asymmetric) private key offline. The latter is used by GPG to encrypt the symmetric session key. So I am after a scheme that makes use of these aspects ...

comment No targets available when trying to set alias target from Route 53 to S3
@Michael-sqlbot Right. RFC6125 6.4.3.2 disallows a single, left-most * to match periods (e.g., *.example.com would match foo.example.com but not bar.foo.example.com), but where does the RFC say that a wildcard cert for *.*.example.com (presumably then matching foo.example.com and bar.foo.example.com) is disallowed? Probably I've overlooked it, could you point me to? In any case, this is causing trouble: github.com/boto/boto/issues/2836

This is great, but on the other hand, the wildcard SSL certificates issued by Amazon are incompatible with dots in the bucket name docs.aws.amazon.com/AmazonS3/latest/dev/VirtualHosting.html - catch22

comment FreeBSD, VirtIO, and Virtualbox
VirtualBox (current version = 4.2.12) has a paravirtualized virtio network controller, but no virtio storage controller. To use virtio, you need to choose the "virtio-net" controller in the VM config and have a virtio driver inside the VM. FreeBSD has virtio drivers for both network and disk. And also "balloon" .. for memory. Another topic.

comment How do I non-interactively update FreeBSD system (and ports)?
So you say freebsd-update (sorry, I meant update not upgrade) could destroy a system freshly installed from ISOs when answering "yes" to everything it asks? Rgd the fetch: I don't want to use cron, I want to fetch updates immediately (from Fabric/ssh). So I have to hack freebsd-upgrade?
