Three external drives and one on the way.  One printer and two laptops.  No way to keep everybody hooked up to everybody else.  Need a home network.  Rats.  Shouldn’t have sold that old laptop.  Buy an old junker computer for $40.  Make a Linux file server to hook the external drives to the home network.  7 year old router craps out.  Buy a new one (Apple Airport Extreme Base Station) with Ethernet switching hub and a USB port.  Leave the Linux/3 external drive network down except for housekeeping.  New hardrive into router’s USB.  Backup always available.  No muss no fuss.  At least I’ve had a chance to play with Linux a bit (the Ubuntu distro for the initiated).
