    [ubuntu] Re: New and need help for RAID

    If a drive fails and does so in very specific ways (for HW reasons), then yes, the other HDD chugs away taking up the load. You would then replace the failed drive, re-activate mirroring and the...

    [ubuntu] Re: New and need help for RAID

    Please really note TheFu, one of our resident gurus. Excellent advice.

    Snapshots are not backups. Not even close. They are used to roll back to a known good state after a foul‑up, such as a bad...

    [ubuntu] Re: New and need help for RAID

    Welcome to the Forums, clctr13760

    Re: Install old laptops on Ubuntu?

    My only observation would be to not mix‑and‑match OSes. It makes it needlessly hard to maintain. You should aim for the lowest common denominator, in this case, 32-bit support. As CelticWarrior has...

    Re: Any experience with disroot.org?

    FWIW, this whole line of inquiry has motivated me to reposition an old micro-server for use as a Nextcloud server. I am now self-hosting my own cloud, which, combined with the aforesaid limitations...

    All true, but the biggest reason is its openness. My nephew has a masters degree specializing in big data. This is how he explained it to me:

    Okay, an ultra‑preliminary report:

    I've done nothing more than the very glimmerings of the beginnings of poking around, but things look good so far. In fact, they look very promising:

    Why? Because we are indirect beneficiaries of CentOS too. In the FOSS world, when ideas get created, they also get shared. A vibrant alternative community contributes to the greater good. It also...
