Add CDs, DVDs and Blurays to this list pretty soon.

Desktop PCs, cable TV, newspapers..

What else?

Storage still has to be tangible. The cloud is great but a USB flash memory is just the right size to not lose (although I have left many in clients servers and only remembered when I was in the departure lounge...). So the USB might be with us for a while, unless apple get their way...

I'd like to backup my NAS to something cloudish, but

a) It's too expensive
b) My ADSL upload is too slow.

Give me my giggerbitz.

Yeah I'm workin on 20TBs these days so "the cloud" is def outta the picture for me. Call me paranoid but I don't really see that as a secure/completely private method of storage anyway, even if it was workable spinning

Same; 20TB RAID5 at the moment (16 usable, 15 used).

Been looking lately at either adding an expansion unit or simply replacing it and using 8TB drives. It seems to be every couple of years for me I chuck my old NAS and get a new one.. must be due smiling

In the process of revampin my equipment lately. Waitin on a new Intel i7 4790K (4 dual threaded cores @ 4gigs Woohoo!) to replace my aging i7 and drop it into my Antec Skeleton that's been gatherin dust for awhile now to function as my LR machine. Even sprung for a bad boy Noctua dual fan CPU cooler and 16gigs of DDR3. Then there's a 4TB external for mobile file shenanigans. Gonna use a new 240gig SSD for the OS drive and 'spect that coupled w/the new proc and RAM should make it a screamin meanie rock on

For my server it's got all new Noctua fans to replace the stockers in the Antec 1200 case. It's loaded up w/4-4TB drives (a tad over 13 used). It's gettin the old 2.93gig i7 and mobo from the Antec 900 machine plus an Intel 120gig SSD for its OS drive. Yeah, I know, that's kinda like towin a boat w/a 767, but WTH, I ain't chunkin it out, just kinda puttin it out to pasture and it'll be doin double duty as my BR machine..

Then No1 grandson's gonna get a 2.66gig i7 machine for Christmas built outta various left overs I have layin around w/another 120gig Intel SSD for it's OS drive, all slapped into the old 900 case. The kid'll have a waaay better mosheen than he needs, but he is No1 grandson, so ....

Even at 7yrs old those 4 core/dual threaded i7s are still plenty quick and have been dead nutz dependable. Figure by the time I get tired of the new proc for my main machine maybe they'll have a quantum leap in cores and proc speeds and have come down enough to make 'em reasonable smiling

PS: This is the point where pulse usually regales us w/details of his latest rig, which makes my stuff sound like some crap from around 1020 BC. Outta curiosity, whatcha runnin these days dude?
