comment What is the value/cost of enabling “spread spectrum clocking” on my hard drives?
Errr, 3Gbps to 1.5Gbps, not 1.5Bps, right?

comment What's the catch for unlimited bandwidth for VPS?
I think this will vary too much between providers to be answerable.

comment Configuration of spamassassin on Fedora 21 with Postfix
Oh, also, we sometimes treat the post-merge 'fc' as meaning "Fedora Collection", but I don't think that's really official. On the other hand, FESCo was originally the Fedora Extras Steering Committee, and that officially changed to Fedora Engineering Steering Committee.

comment Configuration of spamassassin on Fedora 21 with Postfix
This name change was a fundamental shift — search for "Fedora Core / Extras merger" to read some of the history, and so is fairly important to those inside the project itself (including, e.g. me). It's really not a matter of pedantry.

comment Configuration of spamassassin on Fedora 21 with Postfix
Sure. For #1, we decided that it wasn't worth the trouble of dropping the 'c', especially because doing so might have caused sorting glitches. For #2, see fedoraproject.org/wiki/History_of_Fedora_release_names

I'm pretty sure this is an area where I know what I'm talking about.

comment How to point CNAME to Digital Ocean droplet
I assume that the downvote is because the voter expects that the target audience of this site know the difference between a CNAME and an A record.

comment Is there a way to get spamassassin to score the top lines of a message body more heavily?
Right -- that "this is not all good" is why I was hoping for a simple, slightly smarter approach.

@mc0e It can't. It's just not that magically smart. A more sophisticated machine-learning system could probably do it, but I think the, um, "one simple trick" that I'm asking for here would as well.

comment Is there a way to get spamassassin to score the top lines of a message body more heavily?
The headers are basically clean. And it's hitting my system before it's in the URL blacklists, although it's often there if I recheck a day or so later. Doing bayesian classification on the words in the subject alone might also help as those are often spammy — but there doesn't seem to be a way of doing that either.

@kondybas Yes. And this is part of the problem, as the padding text outweighs the spammy part by sheer quantity.

It is unlikely that you can easily recover from this. I hope you had some basic manual backup already!

Useful, but doesn't tell you if you have a version with the extension and the fix.

comment Public Servers NATing?
@Anjan Properly speaking, PNAT, which tracks connections and remaps ports so one address can be shared. It is therefore many-to-one. Often, very many.

comment Should logs for /opt go in /var/opt or /var/log?
This package is in EPEL as graphite-web. If you have EPEL configured on your system, can just yum install graphite web. (And these install in standard FHS locations, including logging to /var/log/graphite-web.

comment Enabling Sqlite3 for php on fedora
Also, the above procedure will turn an rpm-based system into one that has a mix of RPMs and randomly-installed software, leading to a management nightmare.

In case anyone happens to come across this answer in the year 2013 or later, note that it is completely obsolete.

comment how to make bridge networking with KVM work in Fedora19
Are you sure firewalld is really disabled in the complete sense and not just disabled in the systemd sense? To really disable something in systemd, you have to "mask" it.
