Thank you.

So, 'data=ordered' (default) means that the data is written to the file system before the (meta)data is written to the journal.

And 'data=journal' means that the data is written to the journal before it is written to the file system.

. . . and the journal is kind of a marker-database (the 'meta' part of the data) that keeps track of the whats and the wheres of the actual data.

I guess I'd better be exploring this further ;-)
