You might have noticed that our RSS feeds were not updating last week. This was due to their accidental deletion during a site update. They are back now and sorry for the inconvenience. Please let us know if you experience any other problems with the feeds.
You may have been experiencing problems reaching the site over the past few days. We're having some hosting problems and are trying to work through the issues.

Thanks for your patience and we're sorry for the problem.
Update 4/7/08 5PM E.D.T. We think we have found the problem and things should be running more smoothly. But please let us know if you experience any problems.
Bill Meade's Build a Cheap and Fast RAID 5 NAS How To has continued to be one of our most popular articles, even though now it's almost two years old. But with the price of ready-to-buy RAID5 1 TB NASes as low as $500, does it still make sense to roll your own?
I've seen posts in the Comments of a few RAID NAS reviews that complain of failed recoveries. In some cases, the RAID array suddenly becomes available, but there is no drive failure and the array needs to be rebuilt, destroying all data. In other cases, there is an actual drive failure, but the array becomes unavailable and data is again lost.
Has something like this happened to you? Has RAID let you down? Let me know by posting a Comment below. No registration is required. Thanks!
