And finally unless doing tests or using private not-really-important
computer, don't just install newest FreeBSD because it's out.
I - and lot of others - still use 8.* for production while 9.* is out
already for some time.
Anyway i think that "bleeding edge" -HEAD release is still more stable
than "stable" linux kernel.

for a server - you MUST do this :)

i assume this as mistake. do not journal on SSD. it increases amount of
writes, and fsck is quick anyway.
do not forget of -t option with newfs (TRIM enable)
