it's basically a NAS. it probably already has linux on it. i think it's only got a remote interface anyway.

Only Papes will care, but GuitarCenter is having a huge sale this weekend. I was just there for two hours checkin' out some guits.

Seriously considering going back tomorrow and trading my SG in for a Tele: http://www.guitarcenter.com/Fender-Stan ... 1432037.gc

The sale would take $50 off that. Was playing one in the Midnight Wine color - so beautiful!

Oh yeah, there was a guy in there playing the bass line of Tool's "Schism"...so badass.

yeah, i got an email about this, and a thing in the mail. gc really likes to send me things about their sales....
i was going to go in and check to see if they have the bass ive been looking for, but i dont really have the money, itd just be getting my hopes up for nothing. even though ill probably stop in there and jamb out a bit anyways. love their sales, as i can usually find someone to play with a bit. great knowing how to play bass...

Yeah ditto...I ultimately decided against it. I'm already spending too much money buying gifts and shit.

im sure you bunch that care to already pay attention to the newegg sales (the 10th anniversary sales are kinda junk imo) but some people may care about this, might be good for foxxs hdpc or something.

Uggg 3 TB. I'm sure I said this before in your PC build thread, but I despise large HDDs.

Single point of failure = bad.

This ain't a bad deal at all: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.a ... -_-Product

also the larger your hard drive the longer it can take to read/write to it because it has so many sectors it needs to look through

actually that's wrong, it's the exact opposite. the higher the capacity the faster it is because the discs are more dense. 7200rpm 80GB has to spin longer to read all 80GB than a 3TB drive to read 80GB since 80GB is a very small section of the overall disc.

all things being equal, larger = faster

huh? he doesnt need raid lol. just buy an external and set windows7 backup to run once a week or month. win7's backup program is really good, i also have free versions of acronis true image and ocster backup if he needs them, but win7's built-in is probably good enough.

Didn't say he had to, I'm just saying that I would. A single drive that big is just asking for problems.

nah, im probably not going to be getting a drive thats 3tb. my biggest drive will probably be 1tb. (2 500s and a 1k)
im saying that 3tb would probably work pretty dang well as a random storage drive, not for the os or anything dealing with that, just for movies and such.
