 Hero Worship

This right here is why you are my hero. I've been wanting ZFS since it came out but was both waiting for the code to mature and for prices to come down enough enough to make my raid5 array long obsolete. Who would have thunk it, me actually wanting/preferring software raid but the features are too hard to resist. 1.8 * 7 = Just over 12 TB, enough to make a grown geek cry.

I have to admit I only just skimmed over the whole thing the first time but I'm going to have to go back and reread it a few times. Still not sure why you created the sparse files/md drives. I though ZFS had a simple add to pool command.

Anyways, thank you for sharing your Diary all these years.
