Our new Indie Games subforum is now open for business in G&T. Go and check it out, you might land a code for a free game. If you're developing an indie game and want to post about it, follow these directions. If you don't, he'll break your legs! Hahaha! Seriously though.
Our rules have been updated and given their own forum. Go and look at them! They are nice, and there may be new ones that you didn't know about! Hooray for rules! Hooray for The System! Hooray for Conforming!
I'm looking for any information people have on good home backup solutions. Directories of pictures, tons of pictures, weddings, birthdays, special events, visits to other cities. Music, game saves, personal billing documentation. I want to have a good backup of ALL of this.
Here's the preferable solution. Some sort of Raid-1 (mirroring solution) with two hard drives. Dirt simple, but adequate. I don't need five nines up time, I need a way to store my data in case my personal computer crashes. Are there good network appliances for this? Something standalone? Or should I build a dirt cheap computer, throw on Ubuntu, and leave it forever? Hardware or software raid if so?
Looking for comments and suggestions from the fellow geeks in here.
