Best Network Attached Storage (NAS)

My PC's hard drive was almost full so I needed to get a new hard drive. There are lots of hard drive options available like buying a larger internal hard drive, an external USB drive, or a network attached drive. I opted for the latter, also called the NAS or network attached storage, because I wanted all my PCs to share the NAS. Which is the best to buy? I had no idea but here's what I found out.

Windows Home Server or Linux OS?

A friend recommended I look at Windows Home Server (WHS) so I tried to find out what that was. At first, I thought WHS was just Microsoft's version of a NAS. I kept trying to compare features between WHS and NAS systems. Then I realized I was asking the wrong question. NAS is the umbrella term for ALL network attached storage and WHS is simply one of the operating systems that a NAS can run. Most NAS systems run either Linux or WHS.

World's Best Beer by Imbibe Magazine

Did someone say beer? Not just any beer...the best beer!

This month's Imbibe Magazine article titled "99 Bottles" lists the world's best beer. That's a lot of beer to sample but it looks like the Imbibe staff was up to the challenge . What I like about this list of the world's 99 best beers is that it combines the opinions of the Imbibe staff, outside beer experts, and readers to produce a balanced list with something sure to get any beer lover "hopped up".

Also nice about this list is they grouped the beers into useful categories like "Beers to Drink with a Burger", "Different but Good", and "Beers to Serve to Your Friend Who Claims to be a Beer Snob".

Best three-hole punch

Ok, hole punchers aren't the sort of item that we usually get excited about, but as far as mundane office desktop equipment goes, the OXO 3-hole punch is one impressive piece of kit:
