Steve Jobs showed little inclination to use his personal wealth for philanthropic purposes.
And, strangely for a self-professed Buddhist, he did not embrace environmental concerns

Steel's suggestion above is some of the absolute best advice I've ever read here.-40hz (September 04, 2011, 12:28 PM)
100Mbps is unusable-lotusrootstarch (September 04, 2011, 09:11 AM)
Except in the USA where most connections to your ISP don't even get to use all of that.
Ain't leaving something as important as your Internet connection completely at the mercy of private corporate interests a grand thing? The competition was supposed to make things better. Instead it resulted in higher prices and less bandwidth than what's found in many other industrialized nations. And lets not even talk about the joke the US cellphone system has rapidly become.-40hz (September 04, 2011, 12:14 PM)
What is the easiest way to add 10+ hard drives to my current setup?-superboyac (September 04, 2011, 01:04 AM)
i don't want transfer speeds any different than my regular sata drives I use right now.
connection can be unstable and disconnect occasionally
I'm curious because if I spend top dollar on a nice rig, I want to set everything up for maximum quality playback. I don't want any desampling or loss in quality.-superboyac (September 01, 2011, 11:38 AM)
Noise? Total bullshit. Anything from a PowerEdge 1800 or newer has fan speed controls. Sure under peak load they sound like a vacuum cleaner, but at idle - where they'll be spending all their time - they're whisper quiet.-Stoic Joker (September 01, 2011, 07:43 PM)
Oh, and it up to the individual to decide if their data is worth keeping ... There are whole TV channels dedicated to movies from the friggin 20s. So obviously somebody had to be hanging on to that shit for some time now... Huh??-Stoic Joker (September 01, 2011, 07:43 PM)
The schism/stepping off point is (or seems to be) cost. For the cost of 10TB of BestBuy class NAS boxes one could easily just get a refurbished commercial server that will always have parts available, is designed to take 100+ times the beating you'll ever give it, and it has a proper true hardware RAID controller ... With a year warranty ... For roughly the same price.-Stoic Joker (September 01, 2011, 06:00 PM)
there is no commercial grade NAS-lotusrootstarch (September 01, 2011, 07:28 AM)
There's a huge market for something bigger than a file server that doesn't entail the complexity and expense of implementing a SAN solution. That's where NAS really shines. Several of my corporate clients already use NAS appliances. And several others plan on getting one.
So...perhaps somebody better inform NetApp, HP, Hitachi, and a host of other manufacturers, that there's no such thing as what they're selling?-40hz (September 01, 2011, 03:56 PM)
