comment using trickle to slow down browser
I tried running ubuntuone-syncdaemon through trickle; using the daemon, I get rate limiting, without it, I don't. I wonder if some forking activity in the process leads to this problem ... either way it does seem to be a bug, so I'm not sure why the answer below got accepted.

comment How to get Windows Server 2008 VM to use multiple cores
@SpacemanSpiff - what do you mean? In VirtualBox, it has a System/Processors tab with a slider to select the number of processors; since these are virtual there's no distinction there between cores or processors.

comment copying large directory with cp fills memory
There's more discussion on an alternative technique here - basically rotating the last hourly snapshot into the new one and doing a cp -afl from hourly.1 onto hourly.0 but I haven't tried that - you'd have to do the rotation manually rather than relying on rsnapshot to do it

comment Multi-IP address zimbra server DNS PTR records and spam
Trying to set smtp_bind_address as an option on the outgoing smtp in master.cf.in worked! (It required restarting the whole of Zimbra, not just the mta)

comment Multi-IP address zimbra server DNS PTR records and spam
I've now tested adjusting the smtp 465 and submission lines in master.cf.in; they result in the server listening on only one address, but the client still sends out from multiple addresses

Ah, Zimbra 7.0b3 now contains postfix-2.7.1.2z - hopefully when the final 7.0 is released it will then support the HELO syntax
