I’ve not forgotten to post about my file server, I just haven’t finished setting it up yet, and therefore haven’t finished the post. I’m running into some issues getting the operating system to work how I want it. It sound picky, but there’s some hardware issues involved too, which are being a pain.
This post is the start of a series on setting up a home file server. There’s lots of them out there, but I wanted to document the process I have gone through so that I have a record of it in future, and so that there is an up-to-date resource somewhere online for doing it.
I’ve been away for a short time, but it’s easily explainable. I got married! Yup, not all coders are loners; I’m one of them. I got married at the end of May and went on my honeymoon to Mexico a couple of days later. During that time I didn’t use the internet and most other technology where possible. Sure I had my kindle (because no-one travels with a series of books on holiday) and my phone as an MP3 player. It stayed on flightmode for 99.99% of the time (just a text to the folks to say we got there safely).
