comment Setting the date format in Atlassian Crucible
seems like Atlassian have decided they can't be bothered implementing that, the ticket has been closed ('WON'T FIX') :-(

comment Which filesystem for large LVM of disks (8 TB)?
Another +1 for ZFS. Pretty much all the servers here are running Linux and I'm a big fan of it, but ZFS has proven so useful to me in the last 3+ years that I've actually gone through the effort of learning and setting up FreeBSD on the big storage machine to be able to use ZFS without any licensing or performance issues.

comment booting FreeBSD 9 from USB stick: boot error
I would think so too, but I've double-checked every step of what I've been doing and went through the entire process several times before asking here - same result. Apart from the different OSs, I can't seem to see any other reason why the USB stick created under Linux does not boot. BTW: I ended up installing Windows just for the purpose of running the USB stick creation tool mentioned on the FreeBSD site.

comment booting FreeBSD 9 from USB stick: boot error
In my question, I quoted from the FreeBSD manual page; on my system, I did use the correct device to dd the USB stick - I guess I would have noticed if I had dd'd the installation image to some other device in my system ;-)
