comment Best system administrator accident
Yup, this should definitely be a community wiki. In the intent of the question, though, my favorite story is the 500 mile email one - ibiblio.org/harris/500milemail.html - although, obviously, that wasn't me.

comment filesystem for millions of small files
I've used ReiserFS for a long time. Actually, I'm still using it on an older Gentoo server I haven't gotten around to reinstalling yet. This installation is 4 years old this May. What I can tell you is that it has slowed down significantly. That phenomenon has taken place over time on all file systems using ReiserFS that are in active read+write usage on all machines which had such file systems, no exceptions - so if you want to use it over a prolonged period of time it's something to keep in mind. I've moved away from it, using XFS for big filesystems now.

comment How do I configure SPF for multiple domains on a server? (also allowing gmail as a sender)
Additionally, I would NOT use SPF record types. I recommend you stick with TXT. The SPF record type is only supported by BIND 9.4 and higher, per RFC you must also maintain replicas of the TXT records i.e. you must copypaste stuff (bad) and you must maintain them in sync (hard). The gain is nonexistent since TXT will be the primary SPF delivery mechanism for the foreseeable future, quoth openspf.org.

I have no idea why bortzmeyer included the www entries. They are entirely useless unless you actually send mail from @www.x.com which (apart from not being used much) looks plain weird and induces confusion in less than technically savvy people.

True, but once a crack appears in the foudation I'm sure someone will find a way to squeeze half the river through :) Not saying you shouldn't, I'm just recommending to be on your toes and periodically check whether Gmail is being exploited, i.e. please don't abandon authority to Gmail indefinitely. I trust them more than I trust more online entities, but that's just a little trust versus no trust at all.
