I wouldn't care if I lost LOST, but I don't watch or record any of that
reality tv stuff. I would care if I lost data, but I have nightly backups
of everything I need. Those backups don't include the myth recordings
because if it's any good it will probably get replayed.
I think I will go with ext4 for the OS partition and stick with the XFS for
the myth data partitions. That way if ext4 screws up I won't lose more than
a day of data.
