I'll add you. Best time to hit mine is during working hours since I am on the corp. VPN on the laptop and it is slow as balls. At night I am usually streaming and/or downloading.

Yessir. Nothing fancy, yet. But I always have it running. Shoot me your email, I'll send you an invite.

Going to jump on the Synology NAS train myself.

How's that Synology working out? Ever get Plex going? I've got plex on a QNAP, but it struggles when it has to transcode and totally chokes on h265. Mine has an older quad core than yours so it's got me wondering how much difference the newer chip would make.

It's working great for what I use it for (DVD and MP4 playback on my media center PCs).

Naw, haven't bothered setting up Plex on it.

Much faster than my old Unraid box, especially on writes.

Get Plex up and running so we can share. You could just stream from us instead of having to keep copies of everything.
