And now for something fun: the cover painting for FreeBSD Mastery: ZFS. Like FreeBSD Mastery: Storage Essentials, this was done by the excellent Eddie Sharam. The original work was Hy Sandham’s Bicycling.

Apparently non-USA residents who use Dropbox will have their docs/files stored in Ireland, rather than in the -NSA- USA.  You've probably inferred (correctly, I might add) that USA residents who are customers can not have their storage transferred to Ireland, even if they are of Irish descent.  :)

I don't think it makes any difference, since AFAIK, US companies can be compelled to deliver data from their overseas subsidiaries to US authorities. In fact, this could be a negative development since being hosted in the EU makes their service legal to use for personally identifiable information about EU citizens.

I recently migrated my web site to a new FreeBSD install, configured so I could use ZFS boot environments. This upgrade crossed FreeBSD versions (10.0->10.1), filesystems (UFS -> ZFS), and PHP versions (5.5 -> 5.6). And my WordPress pointy-clicky upgrades…

You can now get the ebook for FreeBSD Mastery: ZFS at Tilted Windmill Press. I’m uploading it to ebookstores today. Should be available everywhere very soon. I’ll do another post when that happens. The final cover is below. Art by the illustrious Eddie…

My 20-minute Tarsnap talk at mug.org turned out to be more like 40 minutes. It’s now available at YouTube. Or, just watch it below.

All good and useful information as well. If you are interested in Tarsnap (which appears to be the best online backup solution for *nix environments I have seen) and was not there last night, I highly recommend watching the video. As always Michael gave an excellent presentation.

Tonight at mug.org, I'm giving away a copy of "Tarsnap Mastery" to the sysadmin with the most horrifying backup system. ("I don't backup" is not horrifying, it's just daft.)

As we have a DNS presentation, I'm also giving away a copy of "DNSSEC Mastery." Need a contest for that, though. Suggestions?

For the last couple years I’ve been fairly successful selling my self-published books from my own store at tiltedwindmillpress.com. Recent legislation in the European Union changes this. The EU has this thing called VAT, or “value-added tax.” It’s a tax…

+Martin Pugh Thanks for understanding. You will have legal channels to get my books, never fear. It just means I have to pay a middleman, and you have to pay VAT. :-(

My SF novella Forever Falls is free on Kindle through 11 May 2015 (next Monday). This book is only available on Kindle right now — I’m trying their Kindle Select program, which supposedly gives additional visibility and promotion. It doesn’t seem to have…

In case you’re reading this in reverse order in your RSS feeder: ignore the last couple of posts. It’s content I’m moving from my web page to the blog. I’ve redesigned and rearranged the fiction section of my web site, so that it more easily answers hard…
