Taking Care of Business

I believe I have now spent enough money for the moment.

I have recently purchased:

  • A new NAS, because I needed more storage.
  • New tires for Gretchen's van, because it needed more tread.
  • A new chair for the studio, because I needed a place to sit there that didn't wreck my back.
  • A new TV for the bedroom, because the old TV was in the process of failing and the Black Friday pricing on the set that I really wanted to replace it with was good enough to push me over the edge.

    The last two of these arrived today. And although there will be Christmas shopping, I think I'm going to try to avoid any more major capital purchases. :)

    (Katie has laid claim to the old chair from the studio which I'll move upstairs in a few days. I need to have time to swap the casters on it for the casters that are safe for the hardwood floors that are on the chair that she wants to swap out for it.)

    What's "a new NAS"?

    NAS = Network Attached Storage

    It's a very tiny computer with a lot of drive bays (four in this case) that you hang off your network and that all of the other computers in your network can use for storing shared files and backups. This one is roughly an eight inch cube.

    Ah, thanks.
    This seems to be my day for getting hit with unexplained initialisms, and getting explanations for others from earlier.
