Building a NAS Server After reading a review of the Drobo FS, I became obsessed with network attached storage (NAS). I realised that a NAS device would neatly solve a couple of long-standing problems I hadn’t got around to fixing: data backup and data organisation. This post will explain how I picked the hardware and software for my NAS. To buy or to build? The Drobo FS itself, while a compelling product, is expensive. Nevertheless, maybe you run a small business and prefer to think of a NAS as an appliance – something that has a warranty and a customer support email address.

Tools for Reading and Editing Exif Data of Photographs Most digital camera record and save EXIF data with every photograph. Learn about tools that can help you view and edit Exif tags of your photographs. When you capture a photograph with your digital camera, the camera will not only store the current date and time into the image file but even the camera settings. The information that is recorded by the camera into the photograph may include details about the camera model itself, the lens that was used, shutter speed, aperture, focal length and so on. All this “metadata” is embedded into photographs using the standard Exif format that can easily be read by most image editing programs as well as online photo sharing websites like Flickr and Picasa Web Albums. 1. If you are impressed by a photograph and would like to know more about the camera make and the lens settings that were used when capturing that picture, here’s what you can do do. Also see: Where was a Photograph Taken? 2. Why would anyone want to modify the Exif data of photographs?
