    Michael, are you sick? No, I'm not trying to be funny. Your writing suggest there might be something wrong with you. You should go see a doctor.
    Working so much [even all the Phoronix work is only part of my equation] can't come without its side effects and consequences...

    Looks like some dual-boot people will be happy. If a partition can grow in size automatically, then there's no need to preallocate space.

    Unfortunately Ntfs-resize is still a little bit slow. . Crushes my dreams a little bit.

    Default interesting

    It took me 1hr to move my ~100GB (40 used) ext4 partition on my SSD to a 1MiB alignment using gparted livecd yesterday.
    For some reason gparted does a "move" stage then a "copy" stage, both adding up to about 1hr. Not sure what to think of this resize support in ext4.

    Please clarify whether this new implementation has support for shrinking partition/filesystem online?

    Curious to know whether this new online resize support is for shrinking the partition without unmounting
    the filesystem. I hope this has support for expanding the partition.
    Please clarify.
