comment Safe to Use an Amazon EBS Volume While Snapshot in Progress?
@jedberg you write "As soon as the snapshot command returns". Could you direct me to where this is written in the AWS documentation? create-snapshot manual page only mentions that it is ok to start using the volume while the snapshot is in "pending" state.

A tip: qemu version 1.2.0 fixes a bug that occurs when converting VMDK images. See serverfault.com/questions/429478/…

comment how to do a kickstart installation of CentOS 6.0 on a Areca 1880i hardware RAID card
Interesting, I didn't know about that boot param. I haven't tried to use it. Instead I automated the manual steps described in the file 6_0/README.txt. There they write do not pass "linux dd" boot prompt.

Thanks, for the warning about the Birthday paradox! In my case I will take the risk as I will generate around 20 MAC addresses.
