comment Creating a grow-on-demand encrypted volume with LUKS
Thanks for this great answer. Leaves me with a question and a worry. Worry: Pretending to have successfully written that second 2GB file when there was really no space for it? Troublesome... What happens when you try to read it back (with sha1sum or something)? Question: Are there ways to back up a sparse file across the network that keeps it sparse (i.e. only actually copies the parts that are used)?

It seems that the better Chinese DNS providers have this feature, for example DNSPod.

The code for GMT would be TZ=GMT perl blah.pl?

comment How to create a user and a lot of her files with Puppet?
Sweet. That cuts down not just on the owner attribute, but on the multiple file resources altogether. Can this also be made to work with files that are not static, but use content => Template( somehow (some files in that module are templates)?

Will it do anything to files that are already in that directory (but not in the module)?

@Mike: a common root folder could be arranged.
