You should check out the Norco cases. They're 4U rackmount units with 24 hot-swap HDD bays, designed to fit regular ATX motherboards. Very cheap for what you get (also include a ton of fans). The build quality is not spectacular, but for a home system where you're not doing a whole lot of swapping they're great.

^^ This. Having hotswap also makes a big difference when you start having lots of drives. I'm still using a Norco RPC-4020 from about 3 years ago, 20x hotswap bays.. with the backplane mounted (8cm) fans running at 5V. Makes it acceptably quiet.. a lot of the server grade hardware will be set to tornado mode by default, as who cares about noise in a datacentre.

Likewise, discovering Geeks in Space was a nice period, that I have some fond memories from. Even now occasionally something amusing will pop into my head randomly from one of those shows.

Maybe they'll have more time to work on some new episodes now. ;)

Cheers for all the amusement over the last X years!

Where the hell is my 3840x2160 "cinema"/"retina" display? Not that I want the apple one (it's bound to have massive bezels) but it seems like Apple are one of the few companies that could drive production of these panels at the moment. :(

No problem! EMP induced forced epileptic fits as they pass through the exit gate, to wipe their short term memories!

In all seriousness: you got a real sense of the fun that was had on set by watching the Smeg Ups/Smeg Outs out-take videos. I'm sure studio audiences had things like mailing lists and cameras back in the 90s, but they also had respect enough not to spoil their fellow dwarfers constantly.

That's because it's chat with a couple of features.

The principle of which is deleting what someone previously wrote and replacing their text with "I'M GAY!!!!"

Incidently the wave I used for one afternoon with some friends now takes hundreds of megs to load in a browser..
