How about a new NAS build article? Maybe build your own storage with 4+ drives, 4+TB, hot swappable, RAID 0,1,5,6,10/ZFS ability, all under $700 including drives. what do you guys think?

That will be good. If you like sharing files on your home or business network.

But do Tom's accept and publish articles written by individual users?

I have also built a NAS server based on OpenSolaris but I spent a bit more than $700 for it. Some people might argue that the hardware is a bit overkill but at least I have found use for the extra performance by running virtual machines on it (VirtualBox) that I can use for seeding, MS Office etc.
