comment Moving Away from NFS
Agreed, I'm definitely not going to kill myself moving away from it, but for new services we are implementing we'd like to avoid it. Existing services that run great, likely won't be touched for a long time. I hadn't considered using a DB to store binary data, but maybe a NoSQL db would be appropriate in this case.

comment What should I know when setting up a load balanced cluster for a LAMP application?
cookies shouldn't be a problem, it's sessions that might be. They will need to either be stored in a common place (eg NFS) or in the db, so that they are available to all the front-end webservers.

comment OpenBSD and filesystem snapshots
What is it you are trying to do? Create LVM snapshots? Create deduplicated backups? There may be a solution, but... since you are asking for help with OpenBSD, it might be easier if you fleshed out your needs a bit more, so it's easier to help you. Many people who use OpenBSD primarily may not be familiar with LVM style snapshots, and so have no idea what it is you actually want to do.

comment SSH Server Timeout on port 22 but not on higher port
can you provide more information? Are you connecting from the local machine, a remote client, a client on the same LAN. If you haven't tried connecting from the local host, give that a try. Also you might want to attempt a "telnet localhost 22" to see if it's the ssh server that is responding. Barring that, check the log files to see what's going on.

comment Burn bootable OpenBSD ISO imagine with Mac OS X (10.6)
This sounds awfully familiar... I seem to recall having a similar issue once upon a time, trying to do the exact same thing, unfortunately, I can't remember what I did to make it work.

You seem to be doing everything correctly. This may sound silly, but are you using the x86 versions of the OpenBSD .iso's. There are also macppc ones that won't do much of anything if you try to boot them on a PC.

comment solaris command interpretation
It would be nice in the future, if you would include the actual command that you executed. Though here it would appear to be df... it's not specified. The better question you ask, the better answer you will get!
