November 22, 2016: Synchronicity

We’ve had both of the twins home together for barely 24 hours at this point, but if there’s one thing that I’ve learned already,¬†it’s that we’re going to have to find a way to sync these swings so that they move together or it’s going to drive my OCD absolutely bonkers! ūüėõ It doesn’t help…

Feb 24, 2016: 26 Terabytes

It’s been a little over a year since I started my little media server project and rebooted the idea of having a home server to store media, docs, and local backups on.  To think, what began on an old, discarded laptop and then migrated to my desktop hardware when I replaced it with my MacBook…
