This is the benign looking entrance to Novelty Hill, on the road between my house and work. It's long, full of sharp turns and very very steep. There is a good reason they close it in weather like this. Yet some people don't get the hint.
Addonics is selling a tiny qizmo that will turn any USB hard drive or storage device into a NAS (network attached storage). It supports SMB and Samba. It has some additional cool features:
1. Supports FTP up to 8 users.
2. Can be used as a print server for an attached printer.
3. Has a built-in Bit Torrent client for direct download.
4. Can be used as a UPnP AV server for an Xbox 360.
It looks pretty slick and is available for only 55 AmeriBucks.
