Setting up a Home NAS

Network storage doesn't have to be hard

There was a time when I was more than happy to sit inside on a warm summer weekend with some spare computer hardware and a healthy amount of nerdy ambition.  Those days were filled with triumph, frustration and more than a little swearing as a finger would be neatly splayed open by the sharp metal edge of a computer case.

Alienware m15x Laptop

This laptop is pretty sweet

I ordered a new laptop from Alienware last Monday and found over the weekend that I'll be getting it over a week early!  I'm really excited for it to arrive since it will replace my extremely aged Dell Inspiron 8600 and decouple me from my home built gaming workstation, and it will be nice to have a single machine for gaming and programming.
