One of my D-Link DNS-321 NasBoxes has started to show its age so I decided to replace it. I looked at QNAP and Synology and others but they were either too pricey for this old penny pincher or they didn't have the features I wanted. I think I found a good compromise. What do you think? :)

I just replaced an old home built NAS device with a Western Digital My Cloud EX2 Ultra . It is ok but I am not completely happy with it. I have to keep my 32Tb's of storage running somehow. The TerraMaster F2-210 comes tomorrow. Wish me luck. :)

I have never had a NAS setup so really cannot say, looks ok tho'.

I have not bought anything for a while, not since the chromebook anyway.

We have been talking about buying a new truck but not sure yet which brand. It's got to have ****loads of legroom for me to be able to drive it safely, so negates the Toyota's which I rather like the look of.

So we are left between another Colorado, a Ford Ranger, or a VW Amarok the main thing is it must be manual gearbox again.

I have an old 1997 Ford F150 setting out in the driveway with the 5 speed manual. I had to quit driving it because my knees got bad enough that it was difficult to press the clutch pedal. I put 480,000 km on that old truck. That means I drove that truck around the world 10 times. :lol:

That's a point as well, my left knee is stuffed which is the clutch knee, it's not to bad on the Colorado but on a new one might give me a problem. Might have to rethink a bit.

Got about 350,000 km on the clock it's been around Australia a few times, all around Queensland except for the point bit as we have never been up that far.

As much as I hate to admit I'm getting old it's there before me Mate. I could buy me a Limo and hire a driver but I'm not ready to take that final back seat ride. Even when I take that ride I want them to prop me in the front seat so I can see where I'm going and when I arrive. :lol:

I do miss a manual. I'll have to see if I can locate something to at least give the kids a taste of shifting gears or braking on a hill. ;)

You are still but a Sweet Young Lass. If you really want to exercise the knees then take up grape stomping. The world needs more wine. ;)

@Lord Chance I hope you got a generous data allowance with the speed increase mate.
Aye Arctos, AT&T only gave me 150Gb per month, New Wave gives me 600Gb per month. All this and better service for the same price I was paying AT&T. When I called the AT&T Rep to have service shut off the Rep was not surprised. It was like "Sorry to see you go but don't let the door hit you in the arse on the way out." I better check my house phone. They may have shut that off too. :roflmao:

I did not buy this, but a ISP issue.

I have just got a new Sagemcom modem / router / gateway from Optus as my old one was getting to flakey on wifi. I used Optus chat to contact a tech rep as I did not feel in the mood to listen to a load of bull kakka from a rep on the phone.

The chat rep asked me a how old was the original one that was playing up, and I I said three years. Time for a new one was the answer.

Here's a pix of mine, and bottom one is from the Optus help forum.

Having a browse around on Google Playstore, and came across the LOTR triology extended version set for Au $35.00 which I grabbed.it was a lot cheaper than what it is sold for in the shops.

I also got Band of Brothers for around the same price.

It's a lot easier to stream stuff than crank up the dvd / bd player... :lol:

Good buy there Bear. I got the Extended Edition a few years back on Blu Ray. It's the only way to watch them IMHO, the regular non-extended editions aren't worth it
We watched the first one last night and the amount of extra stuff filled in the flat spots that the ordinary version had.

I think it's about time we had a Catcha installed to stop these blasted bots

The Turtleman is letting them through to give me and Arctos something to chase. He said he was tired of us clawing up the furniture and making messes on the carpet. We get to chase a few bots which wears us down so we don't have the energy to cause havoc. :lol:

Okay. As long as it's keeping you out of mischief then that's fine. Just keep away from the flower beds.
