Also, EC2 instances are killable at any instant (by amazon); if you're running on a single machine with a real-time task, you're doing it wrong.

Just to understand it better: you're looking to split the directory tree into 3 parts, each with a certain size. And the smaller structures have to be fully readable? You know it may never 'fully' fill up without heavily mixing small and big files from different parts in the structure?

comment Are encrypted backups a good idea?
As someone who just lost a bunch of data due to an encrypted backup where I was sure I would remember the password, I'm going to refrain from answering. Encryption keys are no joke, long term memory is a funny thing.

comment Empowering “timid” staff for guard duty?
This is an interesting idea, I'll propose it on the next meeting. I'm not aware of their level of compensation, but considering they are hired because they are cheap, I fear for it. Most on-call pay seems to be very limited in my experience :(

@Ben Pilbrow: Thanks, I've also edited the title to reflect focus on the "apparent personality" rather than origin.
