Shutting down Windows Home Server

For the past week or so I have been grappling with Windows Home Server and the general errors that have been occurring, and cropping up. Now the standoff is over; and I’m not sure who won…. Here’s the short story: high CPU utilizing (near 100% – effectively crippling the machine) problems with adding and removing … Read more

As promised, more Windows Home Server action

I just couldn’t wait and had to make Dylan sit up in the office playing with some of my toys whilst I installed Home Server on my old machine. I’m not going to run off at the mouth on the home page for this one, but I have started my initial thoughts and impressions in … Read more

Microsoft should be in trouble

Toys, toys toys toys…..

I don’t know what to say… no, not true. I do. YIPPEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE I’ve been on a little spending spree as of late, of which I am the direct recipient of. w00t!
