comment Native Symlink Windows 2008 r2 with cygwin
This unfortunately does not work in MinGW (e.g. the Git Bash Shell)... not just because of the cygpath bits but because the cmd /c just opens a CMD.EXE shell and leaves you there. Too bad, it's a clever trick!

comment What should I do if I find someone is brute forcing my server password?
3 failed attempts is way too low a number, as you could easily fail three times if you fat-finger it once or twice and (e.g.) you forget that you just changed the password yesterday. If you're in an emergency situation where you need to access the server to solve a production problem, you'll be cursing the person who set the number at 3. 10 attempts before lockout is much safer, and isn't really appreciably different in the security it offers against automated brute force attacks.

comment How can one send commands to the “inner” ssh session?
It would be great if there were some way to get visual feedback of how far down the stack you are, in case you've got laptop --> Wallace --> Gromit --> Shaun --> Timmy or something crazy like that...

comment Non-ECC memory with ZFS: a stupid idea?
ZFS is a RAM-hungry to begin with, and I plan to install ESXi and run FreeNas on top of that. This way when I need some other server, I just create a new VM, avoiding a sprawl of boxes & cords. (If there's some home automation solution that doesn't suck like X-10, I've got a box for it. If I wanna use Git Lab for private repos, I've got a box for it. Etc.)

@Dan, yes I mostly/almost agree, if we qualify the statement: within the context of an enterprise, and for most purposes, a Pi is not production-quality. But we can't really decontextualize, can we? If you're building appliances that are perfectly suited for the Pi, then you might have a dev server, a QA server, and a production server. (I don't know, for controlling a security camera or something.) And so you might use a Pi in production. Not every server is an enterprise-level NAS or web server.
