    dgul got a reaction from onlyme in Hardware (network) advice please   
    For a business server (as opposed to home) you probably want to worry about longevity, of both the hardware and the OS.  For a drive that's connected to the internet* you really, really need to ensure that the OS is up to date.
    In practice, this either means going for a decent NAS, a computer running Freenas, or a proper full-capability server.  
    Decent NAS probably = QNAP -- it doesn't mean any other of the consumer grade NAS.  Well, I suppose consumer grade would be okay, but I'd give a life of about 3 years before I'd start to worry about it being connected to the real-world.  You've indicated that you don't like to mess with things that just work, so this suggests Qnap (or equivalent) to me.
    Freenas -- bit of a faff to set up (compared to COTS NAS), but hardly difficult.  Arguably no cost benefit over buying Qnap unless you can find a cashback offer.  One will come along soon enough -- if you're not in a hurry just wait for a decent offer.
    Roll-your-own -- up to you.  I'd suggest there are pitfalls with connecting to the outside world if you don't know what you're doing.

    Sheep aren't kicked/punched/etc while being sheared -- they're worth cash and you don't want them injured.
    In addition, sheep need to be sheared -- if you don't then they'll run the risk of heatstroke when summer comes.  Sure, you might not want to eat lamb/mutton, but if there are sheep around because others want to eat the stuff you might as well wear the by-product.
    [Wool isn't worth much.  The reason it exists is because sheep were bred to hold on to their fleece when the warm weather came, rather than have it moult.  Because wool isn't worth much (it can be worth less than the cost of shearing) sheep are now being bred to moult again -- I think this is a bit mad -- the sheep are there anyway, so the deal is that we're happy for the wool to be grown and discarded, rather than grown and used]
    Oh, and it is nice for Boohoo to stop using this natural product with amazing warmth and longevity, and promote all their plastic based fibres that'll be discarded at the end of the season. 
    [And the ones doing the discarding will be all the girls out today clamouring for action against climate change.  Funny thing logic]

    £1000 fine.  Given that this is the only one where he was caught and there were very likely far more incidents, I'd suggest that this actually suggests that fly-tipping is probably a decent way to get an income, even if you are caught and fined on occasion.

    I don't see the downside.  We had years and years of gay (mostly) men marrying beards, and both of them living an unhappy life with the potential for embarrassment with the husband being caught cottaging.  These days homosexuals can just be happy, with the nice side-effect of having fewer unhappy beards and slightly more girls available for the straight guys*. 
    And the idea that 'taking about the gays' can make a child gay is facile.  Sexuality is really deep and talking about how nice boys asses are won't turn a straight teenager gay just as much as going on about the feel of pussy will turn a gay straight.
    These people are arguing that their child-who'll-turn-out-to-be-gay should jolly well live a sexless life with a wife, while she gets depressed and he gets a bit of cock down on a Thursday night.  Oh, but that'll be fine because God won't see the unhappiness or the action on the side.
