Nevertheless, as a christmas gift to myself I bought my very first Raspberry PI which is a quite cool device. There is so much written already on the internet, that I am not sure if I can contribute anything further to the community, but its quite obvious a device with some potential to disrupt and I will use it to teach my kids Linux (Rasbian) and programming.
In just no time (granted, I do have some Linux administration background) I was able to setup a local RAID 1 NAS where te whole family can share files of any kind (at the moment up to the limit of 1.5TB). Thanks to dynamic DNS approaches I can also access the files from remote locations (assuming I am interested in that).
My first Raspberry PI steps are already providing:
- Remote Family Cloud (Two DNS)
- User & File Management (Samba)
- Mail Server (Postfix, Devocot, Squirrelmail, Spamassassin and Sieve)
There is quite some other ideas out there in which I am interested. Lets see if I find the time to realize them and the time to blog about them.
