Mostly my DVD collection, all converted to DIVX. I started saving my DVDs onto my HDs about 5 years ago when I scratched a brand new DVD movie I had just purchased, spoiling it.
I have about 1800 DVDs in my collection, all of them are now for display only. If anyone wants to watch one, they can browse the DVDs, read the back to see what its about, and then go to any computer in the house and watch it, or they can stream it from my main rig or the Thermaltake to any TV in the house. I also have converted my entire music collection (30 years worth....20 years as a sound engineer) to MP3 and have them on the HDs. They also can be streamed to any HiFi in the house. :P 8)

P.S. I have nothing illegal on my computers. everything on the HDs are a backups of legal copies that I own. A result of 30 years of collecting. :wink:

Dude Pette has way more comps set up and running than I do and so do a few others but yea the electricity bill is a killer if I leave all of them on 24/7 for folding. :?

But now I only leave my main rig on and the Thermaltake case 24/7 as these 2 are set up as file servers. The others are turned on and off as people use them and folding runs as a service on those ones. Oh yea I also leave the 233MHz one on 24/7 out in the shed coz that one only folds....not fast enough for much else. (yes the shed is also networked.)

All the network plugs in all the rooms (and the shed) are also connected to my router so all have broadband net access.

I am very impressed, joshvee. That is an impressive setup. I wish I had the money for that many computers but then I am younger then you. In time I guess. I need to find a larger house first. I don't thing I have the room for that many computers right now. :oops: :roll: :lol:
