When a plan comes together. First of all celebrated with my wife and partner in crime this weekend marking the 5th year since we fell madly in love with New York and I popped the question. Second, completed the Exchange 2003 migration to Office365 at work that has been causing me come serious sleep issues for months but went without a serious hitch. Thirdly, finally got some time to convert my home into a Microsoft Windows free environment. I’ve now got a 64 bit Centos Server in the loft hosting about 3 TB of media and stuff via Samba and all is good. I turned off the old trusty Windows XP box last year and life has kept getting in the way. That and the advances of streaming (Netflix, Spotify, Airplay, etc) meant that, to be fair, we haven’t missed the stuff I actually store. But today, as I type I am listening to old songs that are not on Spotify using the old WDTV that means it is playing through the lounge system and throughout the downstairs. Old school in todays technology but it’s just nice to have it all back and virus free! Plus our video/photo footage of the kids is just magical to review on the big screen. I’m so glad that we have this record in such an easy to view medium. I was chatting to a mate the other day about just how hard it was to take a film to the chemists to get it developed, then find that you had put your finger over the one you wanted. And it would cost you for the pleasure! Amazing just easy it has become in such a short time. Basically everything is awesome and I’m a very happy chap….
