Absolutely epic NAS

From now on when people ask me what I want to do when I grow up, I simply reply “I want to be this guy” Will Urbina is the hard core hacker behind the semi famous Xbox hackintosh/pc mod and his new black dwarf. For those not it the know check out his site. Basically he designed a custom computer and enclosure as big as a shoebox yet stores 16 terabytes of data! (12 usable)
The most impressive aspects of the build are that Will is using raid 5. (Thats the same technology that the famous drobo uses, for those who are playing at home. ) That means that if any drive fails, the others can recreate it no problem. Taking a look a the photos shows nice touches like hard drive health indicator lights, a front lcd and a super tiny atom motherboard no bigger than the 5 1/2 floppy disks that your mom used to save her genealogy on.
