I could very easily regret it lol. Tempted to have them write to HDD. My logic behind this was to ISO the SSD and write it back should things go south. Once I get all the wrinkles ironed out I will need to look at using ISO or backup's for recovery. Also this is not being used in Prod .... thus the no logs.

The sysadmin in me shrieks in terror at the thought of /var/logs getting wiped at ever reboot.
