Well, this is Bott’s Thoughts — a place where I can post my thoughts about the various tech stuff I like to play with.  This started as a little experiment in 2007 on my ReadyNAS NV+, but has since been migrated over to a 6-bay ReadyNAS Pro in mid-2008.

I must say that this little NAS is the coolest device ever.  Of course, the NV+ has now been superseded by a number of new units (the Ultra, the Pro and the new v2 versions of the Duo & NV+) but back then, it was a pretty slick little unit:

You’ll have to forgive the overall speed of this site for a couple of reasons:

  1. I’m hosting it at home on my DSL connection (5 Mbps down / 768 Kbps up)
  2. The ReadyNAS does more than just host this blog. It’s regularly serving up media files, running Bittorrent, backing up data and all sorts of useful things.

Okay… enough rambling.
