    but surely you have explained to the wife that gbpvr is in no way a "hobby" but something that you have devoted hours of your personal time to, in order to improve the quality of life for both of you..........

    That's the problem with boxes, they get noticed, whereas a 6800 ultra graphics card can be sneaked into a pc without anyone noticing.... :-)

    Oh, I have, but she's making me stop short of explaining it like a fetish or cult from now on

    Maxtor makes a network drive solution - I've installed a few for small biz customers and it works great for them. I'm sure the prices will come down in the next 10 months or so.

    Personally, I am in the camp of using a computer myself. My file server is on an Ubuntu box that is running some pretty old hardware and it never crashes.

    Thx for that, and there are plenty of NAS solutions like that I found...looking for a enclosure that would perform as well. Especially w/ drives around the house that I could put to use that way (assorted 80Gb).

    I doubt that a NAS vendor is going to sell you an empty box for you to install you own disks into. Where are they going to make any margin?

    would be good tho....
