TLC flash is rated at around 1000 P/E cycles, so even if they did have to rewrite the entire contents of a 100%-full drive, that would only lower the drive's lifetime by 0.1% .

I'll bet the person who came up with that name was really pleased with himself.
It's the meal that comes before Crunch.

Aw, man. I was hoping for an action-stealth-mystery game based on the Sean Connery movie.

I was hoping it was based on the comic strip.

According to the website and the Steam page, the name of the game is actually "Bravada" - Interbellum is the developer.

After playing a long QWCTF session, I used to hear the grenade ricochet sounds for a long time, especially if a small map with choke points (The Kiln, or McKinley Base, for example) was in the rotation.

I read this as "The Taltos Principle", and got excited, thinking someone had translated Steven Brust's universe into a game.

So much sad now...
Could have been something out of the Anne Rice books, too. Those Taltos were weirder than her vampires...

Yahoo let their cert expire a couple days ago on one of their mail servers; it looks like the one in use now is an extremely short-lived one:

Issued: 2014-05-20 00:00:00 AM GMT
Expires: 2014-06-27 23:59:59 PM GMT

If you're going to run on certs that expire that quickly, you had better have a robust rollout system to ensure you're always up-to-date...

Katie Bueller: I can't believe it.

Ed Rooney: I've got it right here in front of me. He has missed nine days...

[His computer screen begins counting down from nine to two. Ferris is at home looking at the same screen]

Ferris Bueller: I asked for a car, I got a computer. How's that for being born under a bad sign?

It's already going through an encrypted VPN - according to the homepage, Tails uses the Tor network for all traffic. All your ISP could determine is that you're using Tor.

Yay! Congratulations on the successful recovery, although:
There isn't as good an explanation for why we weren't running on a more fail-safe setup, but the good news is that this has been addressed, as the RAID 1 array we are now using should be inherently more capable of surviving problems.
So you're saying you were actually running in a non-RAID setup this whole time? That's scary! Disks are cheap, and most BIOSes nowadays can do software RAID even if you don't have a real RAID card.

I hate to mention it, but another option might be to move the system into "The Clooouuud"; an AWS server would ensure you are always running a resilient system with backups, and would protect the site from going down in case you lose power or your Internet connection.
