    Cool, but I’m more looking forward to OpenBSD not losing files ever when someone or something forces an unexpected reboot. It’s a hard thing to do, but I’d still say it’s important.

    Most recently I lost a nextcloud installation to a corrupted database from when the machine unexpectedly went down. Not the end of the world, all is well now, but what about when it’s my router or other essential service.

      looking forward to OpenBSD not losing files ever when someone or something forces an unexpected reboot.

      Please mount the filesystems with softdep. It has been available for a while.

      If your argument is that it should be the default, then I completely agree.

      Likewise, netbsd has the “log” option, which is also unfortunately not enabled by default.

      The surprise here is that, even while running on a 64bit architecture, it turns out my openbsd server isn’t 2038 ready.

      FFS1 is used when disks are less than 1TB, which is the case on my server. And FFS1 uses 32bit timestamps. Ouch.

      Here’s to hope next OpenBSD release will default to FFS2 for all architectures and disk sizes.
