RE: Home NAS...
Synology has been pretty prominent lately and I have run across a couple of them used by customers. I too am not a fan of NAS' and am much more an advocate for dedicated file servers. My biggest problem with them is that when they fail they fail in spectacular fashion. And because they usually use some proprietary RAID or OS it is not as simple as logging into your storage manager and seeing whats wrong also any troubleshooting is more difficult. Random drops in speed are an issue with a lot of NAS' too.
If you know all that going into it and you have good backups then you are on the right track with your thinking and research. They have come a long way in recent years. I wouldn't use one for anything except storing files that I don't care if I lose. Being able to host VM's and SSD cache are nice features.
RE: Happy Easter
It was been a while since I got out there and got some shooting done and I was glad that I didn't forget what I was doing out there.
I started with shooting a couple of targets with the Martini
After I got the first one out of my system I did another
Then it was time for all of us to get involved. Orkan took the top row, I took the middle, and Brittel did the bottom row.
Then we decided that all 3 of us would shoot the same target to see how it came out
Then it was time for the hostage targets. We did these @50 yards with a pretty decent wind to our back
All in all it was a fun Easter and fun shoot. I think we will be making this a tradition for every gathering we do.
What did everyone else do?

RE: The joys of RAID.
whenever I see a hard drive out, my heart sinks until I know the raid has finished rebuilding with the new drive
If you ever want to prank one of your co-workers in IT just play raid card alarm noise. Yes, everyone make sure your stuff is backed up. It is never fun having to tell someone they lost all of their data.

Just mute the volume on the live leak TLAM launch video and play the Starland Vocal band over it.
