While in Santa Cruz I picked up a 1.6 TB NAS device (which gives me just over a terabyte of RAID-5 storage)… Problem is, my DSL modem which is also the router is insanely, insanely slow and I'm not able to pass data particularly quickly. I was going to pick up a gigabit hub but the Office Depot here doesn't carry them… Maybe not a bad thing because when I tried plugging in the router I already have (10/100 only), while it did greatly increase the speed when talking to the Buffalo TeraStation, it also killed off my internet connectivity for some reason we haven't figured out yet.

Anyway, it's pretty cool, and will be useful as I start moving some of my internal image archives over to it, but it's still going to take some fiddling to get it performing like it should.

Wow Shannon, that's really annoying! What is it, 1997 on Geocities? Retroweb is NOT cool!
