Thanks for that link, Sylwester. A good resource.
For any Mac users here using or about to use a NAS, I have some advice.
If the NAS offers native Apple Filer Protocol as a connection method,
use that in preference to Windows protocols (ie SMB). I have found that
the Mac Finder will frequently go into conniptions and freeze up or
otherwise get snarky when sharing files over Windows shares.
I run a FreeBSD server as a NAS and when I added the Netatalk package
and enabled AFP (over TCP), all my random Finder issues disappeared.
