That’s my new name for the `day formerly known as Sunday`. Today was full of shopping, laundry, car washing and paint maintenance, coffee roasting, and computer rebuilding.

Only the latter was really interesting. I had a new motherboard/CPU/RAM combo, courtesy of work, to be able to do more VM work here at home. Now the processor is faster and hyperthreaded, and the RAM is faster, and more (32G). I took advantage of the rebuild occasion to remove the old Linux MD device, and installed the ZFSonLinux module and tools. Now my data store is a ZFS raidz1 pool, built from three 1TB drives. Snapshots are better and easier, etc, etc. This makes me very happy.

Moving lots of data at once appears to make ZFSonLinux a little unhappy … freezing the system unhappy. More to explore there.
