I think you know what you doing. If you mess your system up, it's your own problem. You've been warned.

Howto install FreeBSD under ZFS (including root) (Part 1)

This is my first post talking about BSD systems, so, I will talk about my first (bleeding edge) experience making tests on freebsd (FreeBSD 8.0-CURRENT).

Update: I forgot the credits, I take this from ZFS FAQ, just to dont write everything again and only to exemplify, thanks Jerry Cornell).s

The leak of knowledge of IT Professionals

I see a problem in this week, maybe a lot people just see this.

There's a person in my company that goes fired because be supposed to "look a lot of pages than doing his job". Since Im not the Internal Support responsible, and I see that this guy just do your work in the right way.. I just try to help and see this situation.

Well.. this guy uses an RSS Reader, and as I can see a lot of times, he read his reader something like 1h/day.. What the problem? Since the RSS Reader get the feeds from a lot of times (even when you are idle) and from a lot of sites, the Internal Support says that this guy doesn't do your job, but its wrong.. And to see this, you need only to see the squid logs. RSS! Just filter the word RSS...

In other hand, there's a lot of other people in the same company that waste the almost entire time browsing www.terra.com.br and www.uol.com.br. Why this people aren't fired? Because are browsing only one site.

Do you know what is this? This is a bad IT professional, that doesn't know even a silly technology called RSS Feed. Try to imagine someone browsing more than 20 or 30 or 40 sites at the same time. Strange? Just use the common sense... Common sense?! This IT Professionals doesn't have this.

Sad to see this type of professionals now-a-days.

This is the result of a lot of companies getting professionals just because have a Degree, instead of read the entire Resume to find someone really useful.
