Share a FireWire drive via FireWire networking
Authored by: dv24 on Jul 23, '08 10:07:57AM

Thanks for the comments on the hint - I'm aware gigabit and firewire 800 are better but they weren't available, and I did want to use the drive from both computers at once.

Interesting point on burning out the bus - I'll keep an eye out for this, have done a lot of high intensity data transfer on it.

That ministack looks pretty good too - will be looking into that.

It's FUD, not an interesting point. Firewire is a networking protocol, designed for connecting multiple devices. Just like SCSI, you can connect as many controllers and client devices as you like.

What's interesting is that people believe and persist in spreading crap about "burning out" and "hideous corruption". Sheesh. If I told you your trackpad emits toxic radiation, would you stop using it?
