I'm an old open-source independent hacker,

concerned about concepts of ethical hacking, teaching and sharing.

I like to play with shell, perl, lisp (sometime), sed and lot of other languages/environments.

Co-system administrator in several configurations, after various SMEs, I like to sometimes take time to focus on methods that I can improve or re-create (for example to change the level of abstraction).

In this, surfing on differents StackExchange's sites is a good way to boost my inspiration!

Yes, you're right but, not knowing about this kind of option could have (same) border effect too. Best of all: know what you're doing and... rtfm;-)

comment rsync connection closing right around an hour
By default, ssh don't run as ControMaster, so you may just have to run ssh -M destHost ping -n localhost before running rsync in normal way. Not sure, but this may work!

You may have to use --numeric-owner option before making tarball to ensure owner and groups won't change. ssh ouser@oserver tar -zcplC /src_path --numeric-owner . | tar -zxpC /dst_path

comment RAID 1E with ZFS
I was wrong: following this schema, 27 -> 9 -> 3 -> =4.5 x 1 disk. It was a joke as this is clearly overkill (with this, each block of data would exist on 6 different physical disk): There are redundant/concurrent technologies: hw raid, soft raid and Zfs...
