    untamed got a reaction from TheGleaner in What's up with these shitty thumbnails? - Honest Answers Ep. 5   
    Well, this video makes me want to share my opinion, so here it is.

    I used to watch almost every Linus Tech Tips video, but the "more flashy" thumbnails were such a turnoff that I maybe watch 6 videos a month at this point. The few videos I do watch I find cringe worthy whenever a team member acts like they are using the product or trying to act out an emotion. I'm disappointed that you are getting more views due to the clown show your thumbnails and videos have become, since I would love to see the old style return. I do not want to unsubscribe since I'm still interested in knowing what videos you produce.

    I used to be a forum contributor but found the constant WAN show delays so frustrating that I ended up canceling that and have now completely stopped watching it.

    I do understand the need to grow and wish you the best for the future, but am disappointed in general that this behavior gives you more views.

    Hardware
    CASE: Crappy case I got for free
    PSU: Corsair CS450M
    MB: ASRock C2750D4I
    CPU: Intel Avaton C2750
    HS: Stock passive heatsink (with a fan laying across the Ram)
    RAM: Crucial 16GB (2x8GB) DDR3 1600 ECC Unbuffered
    RAID CONTROLLER: onboard Intel&Marvell
    OS Drive: 16GB USB Flash Drive 
    HDD: 6x 4TB WD RED WD40EFRX 
     
     
    Software and Configuration:
    My Server is running FreeNAS. The main reason for my NAS is that I had various internal and external drives with all of my data strewn over all of them and it just frustrated me (besides not having any parity). So I decided to build myself something I can dump and organize everything on, something that has plenty of room for expansion, something with parity. I have all 6 drives in one giant ZFS Raid-Z2 array which leaves me about 16TB of usable space.
     
    Usage:
    I use the space mostly for Movies and TV Shows, but it obviously also houses my Audio Books, eBooks, Comics, Music, and anything else (ISO's, steam backups, personal photos, etc.) . I also have the Plex Media Server plugin installed, and am working on setting up rtorrent so it can function as my Torrent machine too.
     
    Backup:
    I have no backup yet. I don't have the upload to make daily updates to offsite backups, so I'm planning on making daily backups of my more manageable and important files (read everything except Movies and TV Shows) to an external HDD.
     
    Additional info:
    I love my ghetto build, but eventually I would like to build something to make it rack mountable.
