Last week I purchased and assembled a automotive lift in my garage. I'm at the point where a lot of tasks remaining for my small fleet can't be easily done with jack stands. Seeing as how my obsession to restore cars isn't dying down I decided to take things to the next level.

Hangouts on Air are good, but I think next time I'm going to just go straight to Youtube streaming, since I can customize the feed.

Stumbled across this, I've had Jitsi running in an LXD container for months and use it over Hangouts & Skype. Trialling it for work meetings over WebEx next. Worth a go for sure if you haven't yet +Mark Shuttleworth​

Join me as I spend some time hacking and live coding on a few charm layers by walking through how I create unit tests for these projects.

For reference, here's the Bigtop testing PR I mentioned. As discussed, we'll most likely refactor the harness module to be more generic, and check it into a library that can be pip installed. https://github.com/juju-solutions/layer-apache-bigtop-base/pull/28

I love how quick the 'collective' is to crucify things with little to no research other than inflammatory headlines
This week a horde of angry, pitchfork-waving readers descended upon the e-mail inbox of both OMG! sites, demanding to know why were weren't writing about t

Tune in tonight for the live stream as we not only upgrade TheSilphRoad infrastructure, but also migrate between clouds!

Wow, what a rollercoaster it's been these past few weeks. I'm looking forward to Monday's US holiday to catch up on a bunch of blog post drafts and finally get back to some good 'ol open source operations live stream.

I currently run ops for one of the largest Pokemon GO communities. We're about to do a deploy in the next few day, would people be interested in a live stream of that?

Help test out 1.3.3 in the Kubernetes charms, and get to deploying pure kubernetes on Ubuntu really easily with Charms!

I know it's foolish, but I do love when odometers line up. The MG B GT just hit 77,777! Here's to 77,777 more!

I've become disenchanted with btrfs as it looks like I'm going to have to rebuild my RAID again without being able to recover data. Two new disks arrive tomorrow. I've heard some rumbling of snapraid and zfs. I need want a software RAID that I can expand elastically over time. Recommendations?

I tend to be conservative on filesystems, having experienced problems even on mdadm+lvm+ext3 in the past (that at least is rare, and who knows what might have contributed to that problem (seemed to be corrupted lvm metadata of some kind - writes were crossing lv boundaries and an fsck on one lv hosed a different one)).

I use btrfs raid1, and I stick with the second most recent longterm, only migrating to the next if things look really quiet on the btrfs lists (Usually it is around x.x.20 or so by the time I'm upgrading.) I also keep a full rsync copy on ext4 of everything; I've been burned in the past though it has been a long time and things have been quiet since I moved to my longterm kernel strategy. I also keep an offsite backup of anything I consider important.

You really don't want to be messing with btrfs if you don't appreciate the risks and are willing to either accept or mitigate them. Honestly, even ZFS on linux would concern me; it is likely more stable but that is still pretty new by filesystem standards (on BSD or of course Solaris would be less of a concern).

Good luck with SNAPRaid. If you don't write to it often and it is media where you don't care if the last few hours worth of writes are potentially at risk, then it could be a good solution. I haven't looked into it or the union filesystem you're using. I'd want to make sure that they have a good reputation for stability including disk-format stability. One of the advantages of in-kernel filesystems is that Linus is big on API stability and is going to tend to enforce reasonable standards for compatibility for anything not marked as experimental. Backup software is one of those areas where you don't want to find out at time of restoration that your software and backups are incompatible...
