See my couch

See my couch! See my couch! It’s a real polar pouch!
See my office? Kind of drab! Until you liven up with crab!

Calculating your Home Unix Score

August 16th, 2008

Tech Junk

After a discussion with a friend the other day, I took a quick survey around the house and was amazed at the number of machines running UNIX or a UNIX variant kicking around my house. Gaze upon my junk, ye mighty, and tremble:

Other, non-UNIX devices:

That’s UNIX 9, Other OSs 5, for those keeping score at home — a far cry from the dreaded “Microsoft Everywhere” future so dreaded in the early part of this decade. What’s your Home Unix Score?

D-Link’s DNS-323 is D-awesome

August 10th, 2008

So the previous 500GB NAS I was using as a home media server was running out of space, so this week I replaced it with a DNS-323 outfitted with two 640GB SATA drives joined into a JBOD array of approximately 1.1TB. M’nhey.

Early review? Fantastic. Not only does it come standard with iTunes sharing via mt-daap, but it has a completely non-sucky, web-based BitTorrent client built into the box itself. Add USB printer sharing, SMB and FTP serving, along with a DynDNS client, and you’ve got a killer, low-cost, low-power consumption home NAS. It’s got GB ethernet standard, so it’s crazy fast — but I can imagine a next iteration of this box coming with 802.11n, and ideally some kind of ffmpeg engine paired with AV-out, thus becoming The One Box to Rule Them All.
