comment What is the proper terminal-way to shutdown?
@RiMMER shutdown shuts down the OS, but doesn't actually turn off the computer. You need either an extra argument, like shutdown -P, or to call poweroff instead. (They're the same.) The complete list of similar commands is reboot, halt, poweroff and shutdown.

comment Recommended storage scheme for home server? (LVM/JBOD/RAID 5…)
@poolie At the time I wrote this, my impression was that btrfs simply wasn't stable enough yet. But the multi-disk feature seems nice, I guess I'll consider switching when btrfs becomes the official Ubuntu file system. Another thing I left out was RAID 10, which is what I ended up with on one of the machines. Recovery time from backup is currently ~8 hours for 3.5 TB data, which is fine. But anything off site over internet would be too slow to be practical.
