comment How to verify the SSL fingerprint by command line? (wget, curl, …)
Visitors: do note that this was cross-posted to the infosec SE. One of the self-answers was copied from there. This is frowned-upon behaviour, btw.

comment Btrfs Defragmentation Of Files/Folders
So: file fragmentation does occur, autodefrag does help, performance impact is minor at best on everyday systems. Obviously heavy-load servers might need to measure and tune things up, but then again this is alpha software so you might want to avoid it there anyway.

comment Btrfs Defragmentation Of Files/Folders
I've been using btrfs full-time now for at least 18 months, with systemd, firefox, etc. A quick check using filefrag reveals that journal files are indeed heavily fragmented (averaging 10k extents each), but I have not observed CPU spiking nor performance impact. I do not have autodefrag on, will enable it and report back at next reboot.

comment Who to contact about an outdated application in the Software center?
+1 More precise than me! Unless the maintainer is packed and gone, of course, as can be the case in software that has only a small audience.

comment Which computers are guaranteed to work?
In a perfect world, yes. But the 100% support clause rather restricts the set, I think : )
