I've been programming since my early teens and like so many of us, I started Basic on the usual home computers like Atari 800XL, ZX Spectrum etc. "Turned pro" about 20 years ago.

I've been mostly doing C++ during this time, writing anything from device drivers for various operating systems to trading systems for banks.

comment TCP/IP & throughput between FreeNAS (BSD) server & other LAN machines
Are you really only getting around 6.5MByte/s? I assume you have fast disks and ample RAM for caching? Also, if you're using software RAID, which type? That seems to have a rather large impact on performance in my tests.

comment Does postfix virtual domain accept wildcards?
The problem with the catch-all approach is that it'll unfortunately also forward all the emails that are sent to random usernames at that specific domain. IME 99% of those emails are spam...

comment What is a good 64 bit physically small server?
I've got an iMac here and I love it as a desktop machine, but I don't think it would work for me as a server due to its lack of extensibility.
