For all my myLot friends - I would like to share some advice that some of my friends on myLot told me about. I thought I'd share it with you, since it can really multiply your earnings on myLot. I have been informed that, when you post/reply to discussions, if you write at least six lines, you will be paid a higher amount for that, than if you were to just write one or two lines. If you can keep your sentences short, then six lines is not a lot ! So friends, try to keep this advice in mind for your future discussions and the money start to add up quicker than it was before.

Network Storage

    For me, the multi disk iscsi storage is just about the perfect tool for home storage. It's affordable, small, doesn't use much power, makes hardly any noise, has redundant storage, and (depending on the model you get) packs lot of features. They make so much sense for the home because their networking capabilities allow for use with multiple computers, plus they can stream video, music, and pictures to a wide range of connected devices.

    network storage server provides a central place to securely store and share all of your data. To easily understand, iscsi storage can be thought of as a hard drive or multiple hard drives for your entire network rather than for just one computer. With iscsi storage, multiple PCs and Macs (even those connected via the Internet) can instantly access the same shared files. For added functionality, printers can be attached to a similar device to share the printer between all computers on the network and multimedia content stored on the drive can be streamed to TVs throughout the network.

    Performance isn't the highest priority for a two-disk consumer storage but it is something to keep in mind. Speeds are going to vary based on the file sizes you are moving and the network you are using, but I was able to get transfer speeds averaging 10-10.5 MBps on transfers to the storage device from my computer and 8.5-9 MBps from the storage device to computers on the network when using RAID1. These are real-life transfers so mileage may vary, but on the whole they are a good approximation of what the system should be able to handle.
