comment need advice for storing data setup hardware for client with 80TB per year of data footprint increase
You know, sales blurbs are actually not very readable. A condensed version with the pertinent facts would have gotten a vote from me.

comment screen / autossh question: easiest way to transparently integrate screen into my ssh?
Actually I never heard of autossh up till now, so perhaps that makes that second command line a whole lot simpler, just replace ssh with autossh in the myscreen alias

comment Is there a way to do something like LVM over NFS?
BTW regarding the NFS mounts dropping, you could create a RAID5 set with dmraid, but you'd need to do some testing on how well that actually holds up.

comment Is there a way to do something like LVM over NFS?
Why not simply create files on the NFS mounts and add them as loopback devices? That way you can skip the VMware bit which adds a lot of overhead. See mail-archive.com/debian-devel@lists.debian.org/msg220815.html for an explanation on how to do it.

comment What are useful Command-line Commands on Mac OS X?
I prefer "sudo -s", it's shorter and I think it may do some specific processing to start the shell "properly".

"type -a foo" will show you all programs named foo, and works for all Bourne shells.

comment Is there a point in using Prelink anymore?
I must admit it's been a while since I used gentoo... I have since moved on to OS X :). I remember a test I once did on OS X: start all applications at once and time that (about 1 minute iirc). Then, remove all prelink information and start all apps again. That time it took 5 minutes... This was in 2005 on a tower Mac, a real beast.
