Not mine either, I'd rather have immediate access to all of my drives since I don't need to share them with anyone. But it can be a viable option.

Well you can do that.

Or you can actually build a computer loaded up with harddrives and network the drives. (Same idea behind you putting the drives in your computer and letting the network access them, it's just an independant computer. There are also some linux distro's that have been customized exactly for this purpose, so that can make a nice OS for it.

ahh hahaha... ok so yeah that's what I am thinking. its a lot better.

I am actually thinking of using wired cable to and from my router to the computer, I am hoping to get better connection out of it... but I'll still think about it. the router is just about 5meters away from me haha

I do read Ken Rockwell cause he has some good technical data, his latest entry is kinda crazy though, I am not sure I should believe it all. he seems to think the nuke plants are going to blow.

I always believe in reading as much as you can, so I will read a lot of different sites, I like froknowsphoto and he seems to hate ken :) sometimes contrasting opinions and reading both sides is very important! Like on amazon I make sure to read the "i hated it review" and the "I loved it review" and judge based on both.

I also thought it was weird the way he was talking about loss of life and then camera's in the same paragraph, sort of weird. They don't go together.

Brandy, I don't believe I have seen you in CS:S yet, unless you changed your name while playing and I didn't realize it was you. :)
