    Hehe I always chuckle when I read daisy chain...

    Anyway how many pieces of equipment is it possible to daisy chain together? Just curious if anyone knows.

    There are some limitations, but generally:

    Thunderbolt - 6 devices
    USB - 127 devices
    FireWire - 63 devices

    Be careful to make sure that you have enough power throughout the chain. Don't try to plug in 4 unpowered hubs and 10 USB-powered external hard drives. ;)
