    Code:
    directhex@mortos:~$ apt-cache search nzb
    hellanzb - Newzbin (nzb) & BinNews (bns) files downloader and post-processor
    klibido - usenet binary grabber for KDE
    libnzb-dev - An nzb based Usenet binary grabber (development files)
    libnzb0c2a - An nzb based Usenet binary grabber (runtime library)
    nzb - An nzb based Usenet binary grabber
    python-yenc - yEnc encoding/decoding extension for Python
    of the above, "nzb" and "klibido" are GUI apps

    Anyone know what Adaptec's are like?
    supported by the in-kernel "aacraid" driver, as of several years

    I know all Windows drivers are closed source but the windows kernel changes once every 2 years... Linux gets an update every 2 weeks or so.
    don't update every fortnight then. run a distribution which has a lengthy support cycle

    By "NZB to extracted file" what I mean is:

    NZB -> Broken RARs + PAR2 -> Fixed RARs -> tvepisode.mkv

    Re: "Fake" RAID?

    If you went Linux, you could use the built in Linux Kernel RAID drivers. No need to worry about hardware card driver compatability, and with a machine of that spec, there will be negligible performance hit.

    Re: "Fake" RAID?

    This is really meant to be a high performance file server, so software RAID is out of the question. I have narrowed it down to two possible cards I think:

    Adaptec 5805
    Areca ARC-1220

    The Adaptec card seems to have much better specs, and is cheaper... but someone said that Areca's solution is "proper" hardware RAID (i.e. transparent)? I have seen this and this (see "1.02 drivers"), which make it seem otherwise though.

    Would be nice if these websites explained what their products do better!

    Thanks again

    They are both hardware RAID cards.
