Best filesystem laugh today.

Via Slashdot's Ext4 Advances As Interim Step To Btrfs article, I got curious about Btrfs and looked it up on Wikipedia. Then I started laughing, from this:

Btrfs is still in heavy development and many basic features are still missing (like detecting when the disk is full, as of May 2008).

Yes, I am such a geek that I thought that was funny.

No, I am not such an arrogant geek that I look down on the Btrfs developers for omitting that. Writing a filesystem is a seriously big undertaking, and one of those really scary pursuits - you are writing code that stores everything important on a hard drive. That is just wow.

Just tickled by that omission.

Ok, back to work...
