Interesting.

I actually moved FROM NY to PA. I don't plan on ever moving back. It's nice to now live in the US.

I just forgot to update here.

2 miles? :D Just over the barricade and around the concertina wire. ;)

I can't get too far away from Mom, or she'd flip. I get the good gun laws, though. Yep, I'm JUST over the border from NY.

That is okay, but you still need a backup of that NAS or it is useless. The problem with most external drives is that people buy the cheap ones. you really need to get a box and put enterprise level drives in or you are severely putting your data at jeopardy.

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...ou need to get a box and put the

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:

My office is in a constant state of flux. I posted this in another discussion elsewhere in the forum a couple days ago..

Okay......this is the neatest my office has been in quite a while, so I thought I'd share with you the challenge I face every day trying to keep it all working, and organized in my very scattered brain. Also, visualize all this running on a 20-amp breaker, and all the trips I have to make outdoors to reset it.

QUOTED IMAGE

For your convenience, I have prepared a legend to identify some of the treasures in my mancave.

1. A Bose thingamajig that plays my iPods. Unfortunately, I really only have one iPod that seems to link to my library. The other three are for decoration.
2. Postage meter
3. Telephone
4. In Box (always full). Actually there are 3 In Boxes (always full) and no Out Box.
5. My MacBook Pro in its travel bag.
6. Cable modem
7. Ethernet switch
8. Apple Time Capsule backup/wireless router
9 & 16. 23" Apple Cinema Displays
10. PC (not visible behind monitor....not connected to anything, either)
11. Flatbed scanner. Note: Items 25 & 29 also have flatbed scanners, but they don't work in Adobe Acrobat where I really need them. Hence, the flatbed scanner which does work, for some reason.
12. Canon baseball cap
13. Brother label printer
14. External hard drive
15. Shelf full of junk
16. See 9, above
17. 30" Apple Cinema Display
18. Quad-core Mac Pro
19. Recycle bin (usually full of diet cola cans)
20. Support device for keeping butt off floor
21. (Hidden by support device) Eight-core Mac Pro
22. Card reader
23. Treasured photo of the Teutul family (autographed)
24. Box of pencils (vertical)
25. HP LaserJet 4345mfp priner/copier/fax/dead weight
26. Canon i9900 inkjet printer
27. Box of pencils (horizontal)
28. Uninterruptable power supply (battery backup)
29. Brother MFC9420N color laser printer/fax/copier/mis​take
30-33. In no particular order, Blu-ray player, VCR to DV dubbing deck, DVD player, cable box.
34. Rolling cart with junk on it.
35. (behind desk leg) Uninterruptable power supply)
36. Repossessed by finance company
37. Ugly valence
38. Mickey Mouse (music box plays theme from Mickey Mouse Club)
39. Canadian moose (Beanie Baby)
40 thru 45. 42" horizontal files (where most of the mess is now hidden).

I'm not sure which is more impressive, your wall of boxes or this.

I used to think you could never have too much screen space. Now I'm not so sure.

With hardware like this I would definitely want to try for a "wall of lcd". Maybe getting mounts for all 3 and putting the 2 23" side by side on top and the 30" under.

A very good point. For the OSX users among us, it's easy to setup Time Machine backups to an offsite Time Capsule or file server. MacMiniColo offers a great service (external link).

My local fileserver is running a "raidz2" array (like RAID6), and has two hot-spare disks. I'd have to have two disk fail nearly simultaneously to lose data locally.

I personally have two fileservers hosted elsewhere with 1TB of storage each, and have backup scripts to "rsync" critical data (photos, music, documents) to each of these other servers.

As for picture content ... here's my work system. For the OCD among us, never, ever get monitors from different manufacturers with different panel types. The mis-matched colors drive me insane!

Yeah, the My Books are sort of there by default. I use them as a buffer between the Bose speakers and the monitors. Helps to minimize any magnetic interference that may have an effect on the monitors.

I sure hope there isn't any important data in those drives.

I never liked those kinds of external storage devices.

I prefer buying an internal drive and popping it into an external enclosure.

I've learned.. it wasn't the drive that failed, it was the software running the drive. It is sitting here on my desk, minus the case and been reformatted to NTFS from FAT32. I'll install it internally this coming week...
