comment Poodle: Is disabling SSL V3 on server really a solution?
I suspect cloudflares customers are mostly large north american companies. The stat I quoted came from netcraft: news.netcraft.com/archives/2014/10/15/… "Despite its age and the end of Microsoft's support for Windows XP, IE6 remains popular, accounting for more 3.8% of web visits worldwide, and 12.5% in China. This vulnerability may ring the death knell for IE6 and Windows XP."

Do the slot numbers persist after completely stopping and recreating md0 (or simply, a clean boot)?

comment Preferred method for allowing unprivileged UNIX/Linux users to view syslog information
No particular reason not to do that. I'm just surprised that I haven't encountered this on systems not provisioned by me. Thus this question...

comment Preferred method for allowing unprivileged UNIX/Linux users to view syslog information
#1 moves the permissions issues to another file but doesn't address access control. I assume this is a fairly common issue and it seems like there should be a fairly "industry standard" way of addressing it. #2 is explicitly outside the scope of the question.

comment Preferred method for allowing unprivileged UNIX/Linux users to view syslog information
Also worth noting is that I find fiddling with the syslog default umask undesirable as it would expose the secure log/etc.
