Re: Nothing In Particular

Re: The Audio-Talk Motorcycling thread.

Does the water pump run off the back of the cam belt? If so, that might need checking.

USB hard drive recommendations

I’m looking for a 1tb USB hard drive to use for music storage for a possible raspberry pi project and as backup to my ancient cobbled-up NAS. Reliability is my greatest concern. Does anyone have any particular recommendations?
