I am the owner and editor of this site. I have been interested in gadgets and tech since I was a little kid. I have also written a number of books on various tech subjects. I also blog for The Huffington Post and for FHM. And I am honoured to be a Microsoft MVP since January 2008 - again this year as an Xbox MVP.
My friend, and fellow MVP, Pete Stagman has just published the first in a series of articles on how you can build your own Astaro Personal Firewall with either spare or low end parts, and no other cost.
Earlier today I was sitting in the lounge of a major International airport and I connected my computer up to their free Internet service, via a wired connection, which is provided to all visitors of the lounge. Literally within minutes my computer was being attacked.
A while ago now, my friend and fellow MVP, Kevin Royalty wrote an article on how to use the Windows Software Update Services (WSUS) using your Windows Home Server. Kevin has since updated the article to include an automated way of performing maintenance. So, here it is – thanks Kevin!
A few weeks ago, I wrote an article called Backing Up a Mac with an HP MediaSmart EX485 or EX487. The article explained how to back up a Mac using Time Machine to your HP MediaSmart EX485 or EX487. This was possible due to some added software that HP included with the new MediaSmart Servers. Now for all those people who don’t yet have either the EX485 or the EX487, but still have either the EX470 or EX475, MediaSmartHome.com has a detailed article on how to do pretty much the same thing using SMB Shares.
