I agree on that one.

Meanwhile, I've been using ReiserFS 3.6 for a few years on various
systems and so far I've not noticed any fs problems. What I have noticed
is that it does work well as advertised, especially so for lots of small
files (often in the same directory) and also for when you have lots of
hard links...

And I thought ajax was some clever web coding... Or are you just
cleaning up? ;-)

Any further thoughts?
