My File Server…

Wed 28 May 2014

This is a heads up about a project I will be talking about quite a lot in the very near future.

I have, in my bedroom a Dell desktop PC running Windows XP. Yesterday I began setting it up as a file server. Now obviously being a prototype it was nowhere near useable. For a start I was using a wifi adapter that only supports an 11mbs connection and usually runs at around 2mbs (when say a foot away from the router I should add). I will likely be doing some YouTube videos about it and the process of setting it up, so stay tuned for more news about that.
As it stands the computer is not too bad, it was my main computer for seven years and only got replaced at the end of last year so as you would imagine there are a lot of programs to uninstall and problems to fix (the registry has been corrupted for about two years) but when all this is done I hope it will be a very useful tool to have around the house
Oh, and today on the train I am listening to The Edge by Tonight Alive (Spotify link later)
