comment How can I find a light sensor to adapt my monitor's brightness to the room?
Any idea how I could adapt one?

Cool idea, it does work, but I'd rather have it update the brightness more smoothly and not flash the recording light on my webcam. Just me.

comment Performance penalty with different brands of SSD in a RAID 0?
I won't. I have only SATA 3 on my motherboard. :-)

comment Realtime sync across multiple computers
When I'm connected I get a big performance hit unless I specifically tell it to go offline, so I think it is going over the network. It's not realtime if I have to switch it on and off manually. Also, I can't do multiple folders for multiple users if I just relocate the cache and edit those files directly.

Only problem, it won't synchronize deletes. It also did not detect a move.

BlueFish says it isn't for two way sync, see my question about DropBox, and Syncing.net is expensive BUT DSynchronize might do what I need. It doesn't look like it does delta sync, but hey, at this point I guess I might have to accept what's available.

This requires a MyBook. And I need realtime two way sync.

Nice idea. The only thing is I want to edit them locally and that will only happen if I actually am offline from the server, which I don't want to be.

For instance, if one computer updates a file and it gets synced to the file server, how will the other computers know to sync with the file server?

I'm assuming I'd have each sync client point to the same source to keep the four computers in sync. If two sync clients are updating and reading the same file at the same time, what will happen on the server if there is no software running on the server to manage the collision?

Looks really good except for multiple computer support. I'm going to need something running on each computer for change detection and on the server to manage the synchronization or they'll end up colliding.
