Feedback:

For what it’s worth, I prefer having the whole show in one chunk. And I suspect the higher stats on the second half are because most podcatchers sort by most recent, so part 2 will come up first and then many people won’t get round to manually going back to look for part 1 in their feeds? Just my thoughts 😎

Ian Barton on 4TB NAS Drive Bargain

Since switching to recording video in 4k the drives my NAS box are creaking at the seams.
I currently have 4×2 TB drives. These are divided into two RAID1 units, giving me two drives of 2TB. Note that RAID1 is basically two drives that are mirrors, so if one drive fails, you can replace it with another drive without losing any data. Scan has WD Red Plus 4TB NAS 3.5″ SATA HDD/Hard Drive at the bargain price of £100.
