comment Technical details of Windows software RAID
"RAID operates at the block level, typically a 64k block." Source for this, as applied to Windows software RAID? I have weak evidence to the contrary, and I'd like to sort out exactly what's going on.

comment Is FreeNAS reliable?
"As with all free software - use the most commercialized, supported and still free product. Think OpenSuse, MySQL, OpenFiler and so on." I don't agree with this at all. Many "commercialized open source" products are garbage compared to their competitors; the commercial market doesn't care about quality, but about what people are willing to pay for. Of course some level of commercialization may be desirable if you want/need a support contract, but the most commercialization is hardly a good thing.

As far as I can tell, TSIG only secures updates to DNS, not queries.

comment Optimum way to serve 70,000 static files (jpg)?
I'd imagine you just want to wrap a typical call to fopen() in a loop, then pound away opening (and quickly close()ing) a typical set of files by name. Make sure fopen() isn't lazy before you trust those results, though. @Christopher Cashell: Hence the big fat disclaimer :)
