    Oh I've just been watching "MI High" I know it's a kids show, but I find it pretty comical how the evil villains are so "cartoon" ish lol. I'd watch it at the gym, but there it looks odd, so I watch Al Jazeera there lol

    Were you feeding your cousin?



    Bit more than that. What you don't get with an external HDD is redundancy, and you don't get network capabilities either. I guess you COULD attach it to a PC, and have it run via network, but the running costs outweigh the costs of a NAS drive.

    Not to mention with a NAS drive, you can upload/download to it any where in the world.

    I might have a look at NAS enclosures like this:

    And add in the hard drives myself. Or perhaps build a small low power PC. Choices, choices lol
    i have never heard of NAS before today haha.

    You could always build your own NAS with Atom +2gb RAM. Will be cheaper and more fun'

    Aw I loved that show, haven't watched it in a while.
    It would have looked a bit odd if you watched it at the gym lol

    Wow. That is pretty cheap, and it has RAID one capabilities, as well as a bit-torrent client built in. Slight saving over the one I linked to on Amazon as well

    Ah I see. Lol some music, Im like "lyric lyric lyric silence lyric lyric lyric"

    Well yeah, but my plan is to use it as a media server. Like it has 6TB of space (between two drives). I'd use 3TB, and then something called RAID 1. RAID one means that you have two disks, and all the files are copied straight on to the other disk. It's kinda expensive, considering you need two drives, but it means if one fails, then you have another one ready to go.

    And you could put around 2000 movies on it I guess, so that works out at around 14p/movie

    I could get a PC and bung some drives in there, but the running costs are higher



    Tbf, I kinda agree with your brother (aside from the punching) Im a bit older, and I think I wanna wait a bit It's embarassing when people keep mentioning it....

    lol useful den and if u think about it from the movies perspective it aint much! yh true..



    lol i want my bro to get married tho so i can go to my first wedding!!! my friends are like "u aint asian if uve never been to a wedding before!!!"



    lol i feel 4 u(dnt really lol )

    Nope. And the running costs are low as well. You can make a cheap computer/server but the running costs outstrip the cost of buying a more expensive device

    Oh I see. I've been to some before. They're nothing much. I don't really like weddings lol
