Semester Projects

This semester at UNT I'm going to be taking graduate-level jazz arranging. We've only had a few class sessions so far, but I can already tell it's going to be an interesting term.

My Home NAS, Part 4

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.

My Home NAS, Part 3

Now that the hardware's put together, the next step is installing the operating system.  As I mentioned earlier, my goal here is to install Debian Etch (actually, for reasons related to my backup policy, I ended up going with Debian Lenny; the install process is almost exactly the same, but you get slightly newer software) onto the onboard CompactFlash card without having to install an optical drive to do it.

My Home NAS, Part 2

Well, the hardware's here...at least most of it.  Aside from the defunct Hitachi Deskstar I mentioned in Part 1 of this lovely series, everything else has arrived intact and ready to go.  So, I thought it might be a good time to post some notes on the assembly process.

My Home NAS, Part 1

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?
