I have a mess of ad-hoc backup systems, none of which “just work”. I would like to have a NAS that quietly backs up the cross-platform content I have, and also mirrors it online securely. I should probably budget for about 1-2 TB. I have no problem doing geeky setup stuff, but the less routine stuff I have to remember, the better. System details follow. [more inside]
I want to move to network-attached storage. I've got two Macs and am trying to decide between buying an Airport Extreme or Seagate GoFlex. [more inside]
I'd like to transfer (iTunes) music off of an old PC and an even older iMac onto a NAS that plays nicely with our new Mac laptops and even newer Sonos system. I'd also like to use the NAS to automate backups for these two Mac laptops. And I'd like the NAS to back itself up onto a secondary drive. I'm new to networking and back-upping and would like a set it and forget it solution. [more inside]
Snow Leopard DHCP Fun. I want to hook my NAS drive directly to the ethernet port on my Mac. I also want it to have a static IP. How do these things work out? [more inside]

But the weak onboard graphics are preventing joy. Is there a way I can offload the graphics processing workload to an auxillary device? [more inside]
Can I use one of the ethernet ports on my airport extreme for a network disc or am I limited to USB? [more inside]
Help me find an affordable NAS that is between 500g-1TB, does Wifi, has iTunes Library support, BitTorrent, and FTP support please.
Windows Media Center + iTunes Library + OCD = suck.
