comment Can MySQL use multiple data directories on different physical storage devices
@Caltor Per default, MySQL uses global data/log-files for all InnoDB tables. With innodb-file-per-table in my.cnf you can configure it to create separate files for every new table. As you now have more files, you can move them around more easily and symlink them however you want. I am still a fan of moving whole databases, though, not individual tables, I don't know when the files get re-created.

comment Create screen and run command without attaching
For your auto-closing issue, you could use a special .screenrc that contains the line zombie kr, which will keep a finished window open, and you can press k to close the winodw, or r to run the command in the window again. I have this for my default .screenrc.

comment PostgreSQL timezone does not match system timezone
Thanks a lot, I did not notice this change from 9.1 to 9.2. Yes, adding the timezone info to postgresql.conf is a trivial fix, I just couldn't explain why it would fall back to GMT. Apparently I just stumbled upon the 9.1 documentation all the time, as I wouldn't have expected such a radical change from 9.1 to 9.2 in the default behavior.

You can still use InnoDB, you just have to set the innodb-file-per-table, which I personally use always as I don't like the single huge file.

comment Xen HVM Linux DomU fails with I/O errors
Some people informed me via e-mail that it seems to be a problem with the Xen version shipped with Lenny. For many of them, upgrading to a current version of Lenny seems to do the trick. Up to now I found out that if I only use a single vCPU inside a DomU, I don't encounter the problem as well and can stay with stock-Xen from Debian, which I for now prefer.
