Yes, I should probably do this anyway. (One option I've considered is
using a laptop as the server, as these are engineered for low-power
usage - except for the power-brick ... That is a more expensive
solution, and a little less expandable.)
This is off-topis for this list - but any recommendations for efficient
disk drives? What would be involved in installing a 2.5" laptop drive
in a desktop system?
