As some of you may know I am unusually interested in filesystems. After sending John a link about HAMMER, a new FreeBSD clustered FS and joking about starting a tomFS project, his reply offered some help deciding on features it should have and marketing it.

tomfs can process a huge number of operations in parallel, just not necessarily the operations it should be processing, and it might get bored with some of them and forget about them sometimes.

tomfs stores redundant copies of anything it detects as documentaries or spoken word.

tomfs is very easy to port - a couple of bottles should do.

Cracked me up.

PS: Only perhaps 5 of my friends would get this, but I know at least 3 of them read this so no bother.
