For those of you who can never get enough storage at home, this weeks’ Deal of the Week may be for you. The Intel RAID SAS/SATA Controller Card from NewEgg.com allows you to build a RAID array in every combination you care to think of. Not the cheapest deal we’ve ever bought you, but definitely a useful one!

From the Guys who brought you the Home Tech Podcast, and a production of the Average Guy Network, Rich’s RPG is a weekly show about the world of technology hosted by Jim Collison and Rich O’Neil. Using Google+ hangout to meet up with technology guys and gals, they discuss whatever is hot, current or frustrating them at the moment. No outlines, no agenda, no worries.
This week, Rich and Jim are joined once again by Mike Howard ofjpeg2RAW fame. Rich and Mike talk about general RAID configurations, settings and hardware that they use with their respective home servers. Rich, new to RAID, is using a HighPoint RocketRAID 2720 in his Windows Home Server 2011 machine, while Mike uses a SuperMicro SATA card in his UnRAID server. What is UnRAID, you ask? From the Lime Tech web site:
“unRAID Server is an embedded Network Attached Storage server Operating System designed to boot from a USB Flash device and specifically designed for digital media storage.”
Warning: Long Show Ahead!
One weekend, Rich O’Neil (and some of tech guys that hang around the Home Server Show Podcast) thought, “what would happen if we just recorded some of the conversations we have around our tech stuff?” The result was this podcast that we recorded on July 31st. Rich’s Random Podcast Generator was born! Interested in your feedback.
We used Google+ Hangout to record the conversation. If this project is successful, we will try it again on it’s very own RSS feed!
We chatted about SSD Drives, RAID, UNRAID, problems with Apple, Android and Windows Phone 7 and much, much more.
Here are some links for the show:
