Seriously, an SSD was the biggest gain in system performance I've seen in years.

It should also read "Seriously, an SSD was the biggest gain in data loss I've seen in years."

rudolfel Re:OpenBSD + Truecrypt + Rip Anywhere Mp3 player (128 comments)

5. Nothing about the device should be proprietary, neither hardware or software.

Good luck finding hardware the size of an mp3 player which is not proprietary and runs OpenBSD :)

rudolfel Advertisement for Intel (158 comments)

Slashdot has become an advertising site. Intel is always the best. Any article which compares Intel with AMD or Nvidia is a piece of crap. Intel 20 years behind in graphics.

The FreeBSD Foundation Is Soliciting Project Proposals

rudolfel Too many (58 comments)

- fix your filesystem when installing ports. - if your installation program does not use good defaults for filesystems (out of inodes in 2012 :))) ) give the user the possibility to change defaults and document it. I gave up on FreeBSD after I was not able to install it because out of inodes and not finding any documentation about how to format a partition during install with different parameters than default ones. Last but not least: PUT THE GOD DAMN DOCUMENTATION ON THE CD/COMPUTER. YOU CANNOT ACCESS DOCUMENTATION WITHOUT INTERNET.
