Finally up and running again. Not the fault of an installer but rather my need to finish some work on my core and problems getting the latest snapshot downloaded clean on my connection.
I have added quite a few gadgets since I was last active and as I get them working smooth with 10.04 I will post some how-to and/or problems encountered.
- I may be the biggest ibex fan around and though told explicitly to avoid cheap tablets the Flytouch so far survived everything me an my roommate can flash onto it. Yes, tehbard is still breaking stuff but we are probably pretty close to even as I have "modded" some things of his into uselessness of smoking piles of electronics a few times.
- NAS, NAS, SAS, about sums up my focus while my lmce gear was packed away. Between the major players in NAS OS (I haven't toyed with Buffalo, Drobo, LinkStation, etc), I have my own favorites but should be able to help anyone who hasn't researched or tried them yet to get set up. OpenMediaVault and NAS4free I am proficient at and I have had my hands on one well built FREENAS system with ZFS raid to actually see the payoff for the investment.
Hope to catch up in IRC when able, I still have devices to reconfigure and of course... enjoy the media I haven't had access to.
