I'm in a _tiny_ apartment so there's just not the space for
_another_machine_.  My storage server does double duty as my workstation
and has been made quiet enough through larger, slower fans (and a quiet
case).  The machine is about three feet from my head where I sleep (and
my partner needs hardware to be nearly silent).

Eventually, we'll get more space, and then I'll probably play around
with ZFS :)
