Submission + - Configuration through command line or UI? 2

i_ate_god writes: "Ask Slashdot: What do people here prefer, or what experiences have they had, when it comes to configuration of an application? Are people more comfortable using a user interface to configure an application or are they more comfortable using a command line to edit configuration files? Are there cases where one solution is better than another or should an application support both?"

Submission + - Ask Slashdot: Home hard drive storage 1

i_ate_god writes: I download a lot of 720/1080p videos, and I also produce a lot of raw uncompressed video. I have run out of slots to put in harddrives across two computers. I need (re: want) access to my files at all times (over a network is fine), especially since I maintain a library of what I've got on the TV computer. I don't want to have swappable USB drives, I want all hard drives available all the time on my network. I'm assuming that, since it's on a network, I won't need 16,000 RPM drives and thus I'm hoping a solution exists that can be moderately quiet and/or hidden away somewhere and still keep somewhat cool. So Slashdot, what have you done?
