comment RAID Configuration
@Dmitry If you have a RAID 10 array plus 4 additional individuation disks, then that means you have 8 disks total Remember, RAID 10 needs at least 4 physical disks. You stated that you have 6 disks above. So you you have 6 disks or 8 - RAID 10 or RAID1?

Concerning the counterfeiting of reputation, it's not exactly trivial, no. However I see some people who are on the first page who field a mass quantity of questions of a relatively mundane variety and have gotten impressive reputation points as a result. It's obvious that you're not one of those, but still I think it shows that reps aren't terribly important. It shows thrust, but not vector. As to knowing about you, it's true I dropped off the face of SF for a while, but I've been catching up on meta and the like so can piece together a good idea of virtually anyone that's been active.

Nice set of fast facts, Mark. And wasn't I the one who called you SF's Rolodex? =) Can you tell us a bit about what you like about SF as well as what you dislike about it? There's also a question about culture here meta.serverfault.com/questions/1108/…

Good on you for not being a heavy handed moderator. Would you consider answering this question on ServeFault culture? meta.serverfault.com/questions/1108/…

I think most of our disagreement on this site is as a result of a differing view on what defines a professional SysAdmin and what questions are worthy of attention on the site. Very important cultural elements that will effect the future success of SF. Thanks for the link to the meta thread on the "next level". As to not putting anything on a personal level online, I can completely understand that. However, that will likely hinder you from running for some kind of seat of authority. I don't know of many who want to vote for someone that they know nothing about on a personal level.

@Warner I know others brag about their milestones in their profile, and I'd probably bring it up with them too if they were in the running. Personally, I'm less and less proud of most professional milestones as I see they can be counterfeited easily. Anymore the only milestones I'm thinking are worthy of my pride are specific solutions that I implement as a SysAdmin. Perhaps I'm getting more and more existential... ? I do believe our personalties are different enough to cause clashes, but that's a good thing. If we're around only those we like the most we get stale. (continued)
