So, the best solution for Linux-based guests if you need 3D acceleration, VirtualBox is the solution. It's a little buggy though, ...for example, when you change desktop theme in Ubuntu, the screen flickers, but it's not flickering after it's done changing the theme, and what the hell, you can enable compiz. :)

So, I’ve been using Drivel on my Eee PC for editing a Wordpress blog, but when I tried to use it with Blogspot, it didn’t work, or, it worked, but not correctly. So, now, for editing blogs on a Linux, the best choice I guess still remains Scribefire, which is actually a Firefox plugin, and which works with most blogging platforms. Unfortunately, I hate the load of buttons and shit all over my small Eee PC screen. It’s not that usable. I just hope that Drivel developers will make that shit work with Blogspot.
On some old posts ago, I discovered Windows Live Writer, which is good with the Live Spaces, Wordpress, Blogspot, Livejournal, and probably with every well known blogging platform there is. I really like its simpleness and clean interface, and it’s my choice of blogging in Windows. Although I have a huge 1920x1080 resolution on my desktop, I’m not going to fill it up with Scribefire.
And earlier, it was just a test that my setup is correct in Windows Live Writer for my Blogspot account.

# mount -u -o snapshot /root/snapshot /varor
# makesnap_ffs /var /root/snapshotThis will create a snapshot of /var diretory into /root/snapshot file. Snapshot can be mounted like this:
# mdconfig -a -t vnode -f /root/snapshot -u 4
# mount -r /dev/md4 /mnt
# umount /mntFilesystem quotas. To enable them, first, you'll have to have this in your kernel config:
# mdconfig -d -u 4
options QUOTAAnd this added to your rc.conf file:
enable_quotas="YES"To disable bootup quotacheck with will largely increase boot time, you can disable it by adding this to rc.conf:
check_quotas="NO"To enable user and group quotas on a filesystem, you should add this to your /etc/fstab:
/dev/da0s1a / ufs rw,userquota,groupquota 1 1To check if quota is enables, run this:
# quota -vTo edit a users' quota, you'll need to run this:
# edquota -u testuserTo assign the same quota settings to multiple users, you can use this:
# edquota -p testuser testuser1 testuser2 testuser3 ...or
# edquota -p testuser 1000-1500This will assing the same quota settings of testuser to users that UIDs are between 1000 and 1500.
Filesystem encryption, and even swap encryption for the real paranoid system admins, can be achieved using gbde (GEOM based disk encrytion) or geli. gdbe will need this added to kernel config and recompilation:
options GEOM_BDEgeli is a newer way to encrypt filesystems and it's available from FreeBSD 6.0. Good part is that is faster than gbde, and supports multiple encryption algorithms, and you'll need this added to your kernel config:
