WD Introduces 4TB External Storage for Macs
The My Book Studio Edition II offers a whopping 4GB of external storage for MacsHigh-performance memory manufacturer Western Digital (WD) today took the wraps off its new 4TB My Book Studio Edition II storage system (quite a mouthful, isn’t it?). Designed specifically for Mac computers, WD claims the systems are a perfect combination of high performance and power savings.
Targeted at creative professionals, workgroups, small offices and other Mac users, the My Book Studio Edition II external storage system is fully compatible with Apple Time Machine automatic backup feature. The system comes formatted for Macs, features dual-drive RAID 0 configuration and provides a whopping 4TB of storage space.
Lightning fast data exchange has been made possible through the four high-speed interfaces that include eSATA, FireWire 800, FireWire 400 and USB 2.0. These interfaces greatly cut down the time taken for video editing or 3D rendering and special effects on data stored on the drive. Transferring huge blocks of data to and from the system is just as quick and less time consuming.
Based on WD’s innovative GreenPower Technology and housed within an elegant, small form casing, the My Book Studio II drive delivers ultra-quiet operations with minimal use of power. This makes the overall package a highly eco-friendly one.
“The new My Book Studio Edition II is the best choice for creative professionals who require massive capacity and extra-fast performance,” said Dale Pistilli, vice president of marketing for WD's branded products group. “With 4 terabytes of capacity, photographers, graphic artists, videographers, and home video enthusiasts alike will have the space they need to store hours of high definition videos as well as the performance they need for demanding video editing applications.” 
Already available at select retailers in the US and WD’s online store, the My Book Studio Edition II is priced at $649.99 and is backed by a five-year limited warranty.

Well when you do you want to get Fraps in which I can tell you how to get it discounted from their site.

Camtasia can also show you how to get it cheaper :).

Text written about it also, video should be of main points. Video should be voice narated also, it always adds a special touch to the video.

Winscp for the ftp side of things

Maybe I'm old fashioned but I don't like dreamweaver and the like, just prefer to do everything the hard but durable way.

As it sounds sounds like you are going to have a fair bit of content on the site, a CMS (content management system) would be ideal for you. It puts in place the backend and front end for you, and you can fully customise the look of the site. You can even get templates and use these with a little modification (logos etc). Here's an example of one of my sites made with Joomla, which I created and is still a work in progress:


Joomla is easy to get into if you spend some time learning the basics, and negates the need to get heavily into HTML. The beauty of a CMS system is that you can create new content or pages for the site very easily, and you can do so just using a WYSIWYG editor that comes as part of the CMS system. I got the basic look of this site nailed in a couple of days. I just need to add alot more content (articles). You do need to have some photoshop skills to get the site looking good too, and have some quality images. Here's the link for the Joomla website:


There are other CMS packages out there, but I have found Joomla has the most potential to make a good site.

Trust me: building up good enough content to get people to want to send you stuff is incredibly difficult. Luckily we had the legendary skillz of Jim to call upon with the coding.

It doesn't hurt to have a play though :)

it will be hard for that to happen but its just a bit of fun :)
