In my previous post I alluded to some very big projects on the horizon for me as a musician. I thought I'd take a moment to share some more details about what I'm working on, and especially to invite you to follow along as I make progress. This kind of work is a lot more interesting if there are people watching and listening, after all.
Having finished assembling the hardware and installing the base operating system for my home-grown NAS device, I've moved on to the fine art of tweaking. For now, since there isn't a hard drive in the box for major storage, I'm focusing on two things: the long-term stability of the CompactFlash card, and the general security of the machine.
I don't throw away a lot of data. It's a bit silly, really, but who knows when I might unexpectedly need to read a high school English paper I wrote around the turn of the century?
