116 GB of Anime


I have been neglecting Anime for about 4 weeks now and this is the result, about 116 GB of data that I missed to get as well as episodes I was following. It was after that business trip that I started archiving some shows that I wanted and expanding the material and media on WHS that I put Anime on the back burner thinking I would get to it later. A week turned into two, then that into a month and then realizing that I had so much to download it would be enormous if I didn’t start now. So one evening I went through about nine to ten pages from the torrent site which added up to more then 270 torrents that I to sift through and choose which ones I’m downloading and which I am skipping. Some were new shows, some were current shows and some were old shows released in high definition which I had to have to watch later. At this point I really have no clue where to start with a new anime, I keep getting excited when I find a new anime to watch which is interesting but then I get lost, not knowing what to choose next.

Windows Home Server – Hazmat Server


I have gone through a lot with my Windows Home Server and most of all my media is installed on that machine. It has turned out to be the easiest and simplest back up solution I have with huge expansion capability. My Original Bunker Server is maxed out at 11 TB, and I have used 97% of the capacity available with duplication switched on. It has been working perfectly and for very long periods without being switched off. Microsoft has built an excellent product with Windows Home Server and I hope they keep developing it.

This is the second iteration of my Windows Home Server, I am building a new machine with at least 23TB starting, and easily going more with the new Western Digital 2 TB Drives. Thanks to the Addonics Port Multipliers this is achievable with the Back Planes and a SATA Array which is connected by eSATA through the motherboard. I will be cannibalizing Bunker Server once I start transferring files over to the Hazmat Server, mostly all the Addonics parts and hard drives. I will be listing all the parts for this install once we begin with it, and it will be a monster of a machine.
