FreeNAS Jail with Transmission 6

FreeNAS Jail with Transmission
Here are my instructions for creating a FreeNAS Jail with Transmission running inside it. This uses no FreeNAS plugins whatsoever and takes full advantage of all the power that comes with having a FreeBSD core running at the heart of FreeNAS 8.3.

Time for a rookie mistake

As with all these learning things we do in life it is time for a rookie mistake to be made and I have made it.  Following on from my Starting from scratch with CentOS 6 post I discovered today what can only be called a complete and utter fail in thinking on my latest VPS.  ...

Google Zeitgeist for the United Kingdom for 2012 – Big Bang Theory in the Top 5 for TV Shows… BAZINGA! ...
