Today's update...
We have the entrance to the pond almost done. The next part is to get the Ipe railing completed. Once that is done the HT will get it's finishing touches, and then we will finish off the pond area with Ipe decking for the remaining flooring, and bridge.

How will the moisture be in this room?

is this more like a Koi pond or other?

Just curious how everything works is all. Always thought about having a hall way to the HT room that was a hallway "river/creek." Then there would large open books for the walk way. Of coarse my ideas FAR exceed my savings account.

It is a 7400 gallon Koi pond... Moisture does not seem to be a problem as we have windows that open, and will be installing fans to exchange the air.

Ah nice. What Koi fish do you have now?

Or do you not have any yet?

I have a few friends that have collected some very rare ones over the years. Beautiful fish

Just found this group on Youtube, and they recording sounds great!
They have quite a few others and IMO deserve a listen.

Re: Ellis Family Retirement HT: Go big or go home

I have recently noticed that my NAS appears to be getting sluggish... Mainly when we have 2 sources running. I decided it was time to upgrade the Intel Atom. I decided to go with the following:

CPU
http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B00...?ie=UTF8&psc=1

Motherboard
http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B00...?ie=UTF8&psc=1

Ram
http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B00...?ie=UTF8&psc=1

I should have the parts by Friday and up and running soon afterwards.

Re: Ellis Family Retirement HT: Go big or go home

Well that'll certainly perform much better than an Atom! But that's the name of the thread, "Go big or go home."

Good choice. Probably overkill for a NAS, but nice hardware none the less.

What I am hoping is that I can run 2 1080p streams directly from the NAS with either XBMC or Plex installed on the NAS.
