Things I have learned this weekend:
- mysqldump is an important part of your backup workflow, but be sure to flush.
- CRON WILLS IT, but only if you incant the ancient prayer with “-e“.
- NFS root_squash is not a vegetable, but it can turn a capable man into one.
- ZFS listens to xattr and ACL, but you probably haven’t heard of it.
- cp can make hard links automatically, but don’t tell Chris Hansen.
- backintime is the flux capacitor on the rsync DeLorean, but without the Libyan terrorists.
