7868RE: [nslu2-general] What next?
- Aug 11, 2009Greetings,
Well I had taken a good look at where I wanted to go when my slug died in
March. Looked at lots of NAS and home server boxes. Decided that I wanted
to get a home server setup since I had 3 desktops, 2 portables, Xbox360 and
two Tivo boxes. What I wanted to do was get a central backup, media server,
media storage/conversion etc. I finally sat down and wrote up a list of
requirements for this new box, went through several editions before final
version was printed. I now have a Windows Home Server with 8 TB of hard
drive storage. Got a box from Tranquil PC out of UK, a SQA-5A. Love the
system, storage and being able to finally have backups of everything.
