Updated my ugly NetMap

Link: http://www.lhaven.net/netmap.html

Wait...it isn't April 2008 yet.

Well, there's one item on the map, that I haven't purchased yet. But, I intend to order it tomorrow...and I do hope it arrives before the end of the month....but decided the put a future date to indicate that it contains future stuff. &#59;D

It also contains that I'm dropping the WDS bridge for Powerline networking (HD-PLC), that has been ordered...it just hasn't arrived yet. Originally, there was some question of finding an open outlet behind my home theater setup to plug it in. But, then it occurred to me that the adapter could go anywhere on my wired network...since I had made that upgrade....and there's the jack in the storage room that I haven't acquired stuff to put around yet.

There's a plan to do so, but I need to go through the stuff in there to figure out what to get rid of to make space for using it for more than storage. One is to acquire a network laser printer (ideally with color and duplex capabilities, maybe copier)....and locate it here where (rather than next to one of my computers, due to concern on whether I have enough power at those locations U-( ) I'm also wondering if I really need all the features, to maximize the number of other gadgets I also want to acquire....

Meanwhile, I'm already plotting my next addition....Been thinking of getting a TimeCapsule, but now Apple has released the patch to allow Time Machine to storage attached to an Airport Extreme....so I'm thinking that I'll do this, and get a Drobo to attach to it (assuming the pairing will work). Of course, it could be a while before I get around to having all the pieces.

Possibly like the 500GB SATA drive I purchased a while year before I found something to stick it in to.... :crazy: Sadly that was the mirror drive in my Linux server (Orac) that failed recently. I should maybe see about getting Seagate to replace it.... Even though I don't need it for the Linux server now (though I am considering buying an enclosure for it...to mount 4 more drives outside of it....possibly more, since there's 4 regular eSATA ports and 2 PM-capable eSATA ports on the back. Though waiting for a version of Linux that'll hopefully support PM.)

Also looking at USB over ethernet, since I'm running out of space for USB peripherals at my main desk.... This this spot also cries out for the acquisition of a Drobo....since I pretty much to disk-to-disk backup now (since I had long ago past the point of reasonable tape backup [to DLT7000's] of my system, and it seems less and less likely that I'll be buying a new tape drive [LTO1] now). I'm sure if I think some more (oops I did), I can think of other places around here that cry out for additional Drobo's. Wonder if there's a limit to using the GeekBrief.TV discount code.... Though Drobo isn't the only think on the market that might solve my needs, but it is one of the cool looking things. Though it is only a USB storage device....there's an ethernet option for it, but it isn't a native ethernet option...so that sounds like it would be slower than some other sort of NAS product.

Hmmm.....so many gadgets....so little time, money, space, power, etc... :lalala:

No feedback yet

Now instead of subjecting some poor random forum to a long rambling thought, I will try to consolidate those things into this blog where they can be more easily ignored profess to be collected thoughts from my mind.
