Destiny
Rain falling from the heavens, hammering down upon me as I walk. there is no destination just a never ending path, but yet as I walk every step I find myself hoping that i'll reach were ever it is I'm going. but then I snap back into reality, and remember just how dumb I was for hoping for such a thing.
We all have a story; some sad, some happy and others heroic. My story starts in a place called craigieburn. It's a happy place, a place a kid came smile and dream and will never have a problem in the world. I woke up one morning and I walk out to the kitchen, only half-aware of everything happening around me. My Mother tells me my cousin Chloe was coming around to visit; at that, very second it was as if someone had thrown a bucket of cold water over me.
I was wide-awake; the hours went ever so slowly. Minutes felt like hours, hours felt like days. Eventually it was nightfall and it was time to go to bed, it had been a long and boring day but being a teenager those kind of days do happe

so here the situation ive got about 5 tb of data on an external harddrive. filed with work related stuff and various media from music and a few movies. so far ive backuped this up with an addittional external harddrive.

but this makes me nervous that if the hard drives fail or get stolen then i lose countless years worth of work and stuff i simply couldnt get back. so i need an online means of backing this up. the issue is the only means ive found is cloud based services and they charge a monthly fee for this. the cheapest ive found is 25 aud a month for 5tb which was backblaze.com or something like that. 

seems like there should be a cheaper alternative. anyone else out there know of one? seems like most services for this amount of data is designed for businesses not the average person. 
So currently ive got the samsung galaxy s5. Im looking at getting the oukitel k10000 pro but i honestly have no idea how to tell if the cpu and stuff like that is better or not.

Can someone smart take a look and let me know. Below is a link comparing there specs to make it easier for you

Ok so assuming money was no object here is the end goal and im hoping some of u can suggest some tech that would pose as a solution to this.

So the goal is to use plex due to its beautiful ui interface (and meta data abilities) plus its available on just about everything.

I wosh to be able to watch 1080 and 4k videos at a smooth 60 frames per second. I wish to be able to view this stuff primarily on my tv but i hope to be able to stream to my mobile or tablet also. And because i travel a fair bit it needs to be possible without an internet connection.

Ok so now we know what were trying to do ill let u guys in on what ive discovered and some of my ideas. I just dont have the tech knowledge to know what will work or not.

So ive discovered with plex offline usage. If the server is online (current tests using only a laptop) i can view the files on my mobile even if it has no internet. But when the server is offline like how its gonna be in this example the contents only able to be viewed if the server and client are on the same device.

I had a router at one point to test and using my roku as a client for plex i hoped to establish an offline system within the home that would allow viewing on any device. The issue was i couldnt connect to the server (i suspect due to it being offline i had the ips in authorized access also) also roku has a step in establishing a connection to a router requiring internet access which means either i need to find a streaming box which doesnt suffer from that or find a new way to put it on the tv.

I had an idea of trying to get a nas and hoping connecting that to roku via ethernet (no router) might be a way of at least rigging it to work in plex on my tv at least. But havent managed the cash to buy something cheap to test it. (Or if plex would even recognize it as a server)

I also had the idea that if my laptop could work as a plex server and client i could buy a mini pc powerful enough to do 60 fps 4k transcoding instal a plex server and pc app for the client on it. Get both to start on boot up. And then buy a remote and program it to do paticular things eithin plex.

It seems like it would take a century before the plex client was ready to use unlike a roku where ot takes legit a second and its up on screen. Plus the remote would be a giant pain to get working.

So anyone got some ideas on making this work or able to test some the ideas ive mentioned?
Ok so u guys dont know this but im right into pool. I play 8 ball on probably the worst tables in australia. Theres a bad roll on the table. Dueto being like 30 years old the cushions cant be used to put balls in so if its to steap of an angle it simply wont drop. And for ungodly reason backspin is near impossible on this table. 

Despite this though the venue hold pool tournaments of about 16 people. Ive made about 5 appearances and been in the final twice. Won once. Go ME!!!

However due to cheating ive now stopped and seeking out another venue locally. Ive won all my matches against these cheats but i refuse to play against peopple like that. If u set rules then it should apply to everyone!
