No. You wanna know how many movies, songs, and images are stored on those?? Space is a precious, precious thing for me. I could easily count 400 movies on one single drive, and probably over 10,000 songs. Heck, I've got 3,000 songs on my laptop right now.

Besides, there's only 5 drives there, the silver one is an external dvd recorder. Makes it easier to copy stuff disc-to-disc rather than using the drive in the laptop. Maybe you should see the inside of my closet, where there are 8 more 1TB MyBooks unopened, waiting for the chance to make the lineup.

Do the two drives in the laptop, and the few internals laying around in the drawers count too?? I'm a dirty little drive-space whore :D

heh, I have like 10 external drives now. I keep on buying the small 2.5" size drives when they go on sale then think about selling them on ebay... nope, I just end up keeping them. I always have that inherit problem, buying stuff I don't need just because they were a good deal. :(


You guys keep all that data on external drives? You've got alot of faith in the reliability of those drives and their crappy PSU's (not to mention the mess of cabling!!)

I got burned too many times by drive failure, so it was time to build a fileserver...

I built a ~7TB fileserver in my closet, running FreeNAS (external link) + ZFS RAIDZ2 array with 2x hot spare disks in the chassis should a disk failure occur. I'd need three drives to totally die out of the RAID array before I lose data.

I also have 2TB of space on two more fileservers out of my apartment for "critical" data that needs backing up in case the place floods / burns down / gets invaded by zombies...

I do time machine (external link) backups of all my macs over the network to this fileserver. I store all my music / movies / apps / junk on the fileserver, and that data is backed up offsite.

If any one of my computers dies ... no big loss of data - I just restore it from backups ... I don't store any local data on my systems.

Goodbye, external drives. You will not be missed:

I run 2TB file server that's a few years old now and needs to be upgraded. I have a number of double and triple redundant files on the backup externals and usually burn DVD media every once in a while. I also upload essential RAW files by client info on my FTP server. I don't keep all 10 external drive hooked up at the same time.

Samsung 1TB HD's are ~$85 a piece @ newegg.com (external link)

I have 10 of them right now. The beauty of ZFS is that I can add more and more space to my existing storage pool without needing to do any extensive rebuilds.

I highly recommend FreeNAS + ZFS (or OpenSolaris + ZFS for unix junkies) to anyone here wanting to build a high performance, scalable file server for home / office use. It'll serve files to windows, mac, linux clients, do FTP server, bit-torrent client, itunes sharing, UPnP, and more :cool:

Yeah, I think I'll definitely take that route when I do decide to upgrade. 2TB is more than enough for me with just stills, but once I dabble with HD video, I'm going to have to upgrade.

How is 5.1 speakers set up like that? Does it give off a dodgy sound or is it pretty fine?

Here's my workspace. It's where I avoid getting stuff done.

Awesome with the gun on your desk. How is that keyboard? I was looking at getting one but the price was a bit too high at the time of looking.

*edit*

Deleted photos as request.

The 5.1 speaker system works fine. I don't really use it to watch movies or anything like that so "surround sound" isn't really necessary. Most use them for music, etc.. and they work fine for that. Put out a decent amount of sound for a $50 setup :)

Heh...that 1911 goes everywhere I do.


As for the keyboard? Amazing. Battery life is out of this world. It's awfully handy sitting in front of my TV (yes, the iMac is hooked to my HDTV) with a wireless trackpad.

Hey....long time no see, Ronald.

I finally got a concealed carry permit, and the .45 is my first choice. I don't have a 1911, though. I have a Sig, and it works okay. I do have a 10mm Gold Cup, but that guns too nice to throw in the glove compartment.


I'm not short. I'm concentrated awesome!

Not only do you not toss around a Gold Cup, but 10mm isn't exactly plentiful or cheap. .45 is my preference, as well, obviously. Some ask why, and the answer is simple. Because shooting more than once is just silly.

Given a choice I chose bigger holes over speed every time.

I'm going to guess that you have been to AR15.com? You shown the signs of an ar15.com poster; BeefJerky, LaRue, 1911, and XBOX360. Wild guess out of the dark, I know. Am I right Bushylover..errr... I mean Ronald S. Jr.?

:confused: Only thing I can figure is that you recognized my Stealth from the other thread.

That's f-ing HORRIBLE beef jerky, by the way.

Dude, you show all the signs, other than a visible BOB for when the Go Signal is given. I've been a poster on ar15.com since mid-2003, I can see one of us a click away.

BTW, get some homemade jerky at the next funshow.

Oh, and SmugMug is great for OPSEC, in that links can be made as not to give away the hierarchal structure of your hosting service ;)

I took the image, looked at the address and did the following search

http://www.google.com …remulac&ie=UTF-8&oe=UTF-8 (external link)

Poof!

BTW, how was the move from PA to NY?

SmugMug has a hide owner function. I use this on AR15.com and other sites. Since I post images of my firearms, I do not want this to come back and bite me.
