Anyone online who isn't busy and feels like talking about diy NAS? I have some of my basic components picked out, but I'd love a second opinion. And you know, someone to tell me if I'm doing it wrong. *g* I'm going for low-power and future buildability, so I'm only getting the most basic pieces now to add to later, and also, trying to decide if I want to mess around with RAID for more than my ego. I mean, I want to build a RAID array just to say I can, but the downsides of actually using it are getting to me.

I am that kind of person, yes.

Passed this query to my husband, who gave me a vaguely puzzled look and said he doesn't get involved unless there are 300+ hard drives. XD

Yeah, a friend of mine recently asked him for advice on networking and he had to confess that he couldn't really help because it wasn't a question about Cisco hardware.

(Kind of like when my mother asks me questions about Windows problems when I haven't actually used it at home for years, I suppose.)

Anyway, re: RAID, he adds that suggests that for performance, RAID at home isn't all that useful, and Seagate Momentus XT Hybrid drives rock, but for data protection, RAID1 - mirror - is good for ensuring your data sticks around.

I'm always here :) I'm EST, and not a night owl (and Fred goes to bed at 10, 9 Central) but you can always have me give you a ring or throw me an E-Mail, Etc...

Not just nas, but let's talk about Jumbo Frames. You know you want to.

I see you have enough geeky offers. I am always available for questions, particularly about NAS as it is the current fun in the house of geek.

If you don't send me feedback, I will sob uncontrollably for hours on end, until finally, in a fit of depression, I slash my wrists and bleed out on the bathroom floor. My death will be on your heads. Murderers.

That's why he goes bad, you know -- all the good people hit him on the head or try to shoot him and constantly mistrust him, while there's this vast cohort of minions saying, We wouldn't hurt you, Lex, and we'll give you power and greatness and oh so much sex...

Wow. That was scary. Lex is like Jesus in the desert.
--pricklyelf on why Lex goes bad

Obi-Wan has a sort of desperate, pathetic patience in this movie. You can just see it in his eyes: "My padawan is a psychopath, and no one will believe me; I'm barely keeping him under control and expect to wake up any night now to find him standing over my bed with a knife!"

Beth: god, why do i have so many beads?
Jenn: Because you are an addict.
Jenn: There are twelve step programs for this.
Beth: i dunno they'd work, might have to go straight for the electroshock.
Jenn: I'm not sure that helps with bead addiction.
Beth: i was thinking more to demagnitize my credit card.

In medical billing there is a diagnosis code for someone who commits suicide by sea anenemoe.

Anonymous: sorry. i just wanted to tell you how much i liked you. i'd like to take this to a higher level if you're willing
Eleveninches: By higher level I hope you mean email.

silverkyst: I need to not be taking molecular genetics.
silverkyst: though, as a sidenote, I did learn how to eviscerate a fruit fly larvae by pulling it's mouth out by it's mouthparts today.
silverkyst: I'm just nowhere near competent in the subject material to be taking it.
Jenn: I'd like to thank you for that image.

You know, if obi-wan had just disciplined the boy *properly* we wouldn't be having these problems. Can't you just see yoda? "Take him in hand, you must. The true Force, you must show him."

Aside from the fact that one person should never go near another with a penis, a bottle of body wash, and a hopeful expression...

It's weird, after you get used to the affection you get from a rabbit, it's like any other BDSM relationship. Only without the sex and hot chicks in leather corsets wielding floggers. You'll grow to like it.

Smudged upon the near horizon, lapine shadows in the mist. Like a doomsday vision from Watership Down, the bunny intervention approaches.

Rule 3. Chemistry is kind of like bondage. Some people like it, some people like reading about or watching other people doing it, and a large number of people's reaction to actually doing the serious stuff is to recoil in horror.
