Through a series of hardware failures, I ended up picking up an Iomega iConnect NAS device and a new broadband router. I can now connect to my wireless network with my Droid phone.
The iConnect’s backup interface doesn’t seem to like working with a terabyte or so of info, but luckily it runs linux. A simple setting/hack turns on secure shell access, so I can set up backups using the cron and rsync. A complete backup takes around 18 hours or so. I like to monitor things, and the Droid market had a free app called ConnectBot that acts as an ssh client, so I can keep an eye on things from my phone.
Here’s a screenshot of my Droid running top on the iConnect. This type of thing makes nerds happy. I also figured out how to do screenshots on my Droid. This also makes nerds happy.
