comment prevent filesystem from entering read-only mode
First thing to do: take an immediate backup. Ext3/4 file systems can get in bad states after hardware failure. Even though RAID should protect you, weird things can happen. If the file system is entering read only mode, that's a warning that at a minimum you need to fsck it. Worse case, you may need to rebuild it. Rerun your tune2fs to point to /dev/mapper/VolGroup-LogVol00 instead of md1 and see what that says.

comment Domains, DNSes and No-Ips. Point a Domain to a no-ip.org address (using a free service?)
You can not use a CNAME for the @ record in DNS. CNAMEs are not allowed to exist with other record types and the @ record in a domain has (at a minimum) the SOA and NS records as well.

comment Verify TRIM support with BtrFS on SSD
I want to say that I tried running a sync after removing the file and the results were still the same. I will double check that though when I'm back in the office after the weekend is over.
