Howdy, I'm getting ready to split my household for a year, (wife's going to school 1,000 miles away) and I want to give her a good backup solution for her MacBook. Right now I've got a 500GB Time Capsule running our network with her MacBook, my MacBook Air, and an old 12" Powerbook sharing the TC drive. I can cobble together an AEBS and a 500GB USB drive to make a homegrown Time Capsule for $291.97 shipped. Or I can buy another 500GB TC for $299, knowing it will work as planned. (We had some initial problems, but sorted them out and now the TC is awesome.) My question is, in a year when we're living together again, am I going to have a use for two Time Capsules? Can one be set up as a bridge and just share the drive, as sort of a NAS? If not, then I might as well just get the AEBS and USB drive, then I'll have those two components later. Thanks for your help.
