There are lots of pre-fab NAS options out there such as Drobo or Synology devices, but with the right parts you can build a home built system for a bit less with a lot more expandability and flexibility than those other options.  In this article I'll outline my own custom build of a NAS server and the equipment I used to make it all possible.  I used some spare parts and shelving to make for a more convenient setup over the short term without the need for a rack initially.  In some ways this article is an update to this setup I've been running for awhile, showing its been a venerable setup in the longer run so far.

SpaceX just took another leap forward, or should we say hop with its Grasshopper test flight.  It hit 2440 feet (744 meters) above the McGregor, Texas facility.  They filmed using a hexacopter equipped with an HD camera.  This achievement occurred on October 7th 2013.  This is a rocket capable of launching and landing vertically, as seen in this video.  The goal of this program is to create a reusable first stage rocket engine for the Falcon 9.  Typically the first stage falls back to the earth and crashes in the ocean.  The goal is to have that first stage return to earth controlled and save money for future flights.
