Even as a tech-savvy person, I never really got into Flickr. I’ve just never felt the need to post all my photos online. Still, it’s pretty much impossible to avoid these days—even if I wanted to—and it seemed like I’d get sucked in sooner or later. What better way than through looking at the PhotoSync add-in for Windows Home Server?
It is 7:43 PM on Friday night and my living room light just turned on automatically. Since I often use Windows Media Center (WMC) throughout the house I want to access mControl in WMC. Tonight I will show you how to add the mControl Client to your Windows Media Center PC.
When I built my server I envisioned a paradise where I could have my files centrally stored and called up on a moments notice on any machine. I upgraded my entire network because I hate to wait and certain tasks require a faster network connection.
After you have the WHS initial setup and configuration done, it’s time to do some tweaking and customizations. (If you purchase(d) the HP MediaSmart, the defaults are not bad. But, where would we be without tweaks and customizations.)
If you are one that tends to use the WHS console rather than using Remote Desktop than this add in could be for you. What this does is allow you to get to your WHS desktop from within a console session.
Do you need some external storage? Do you need something portable? And by portable I mean something that you could carry around in your pocket? If the answer is yes then look no further than the Seagate FreeAgent GO USB hard drive range.
If you are a developer, or are thinking about starting to develop your own add-ins for Windows Home Server, then you should check out a new article by Nick Asseloos.
I am back from a couple of great week-long vacations and while I was gone Windows Home Server, with the mControl Add-In, has been watching over our home. Windows Home Server controlled two lights I connected so easily I decided to add additional modules for another light and my surround sound speakers.
Guest writer Thorsten Studt sent us a useful guide. He says "After I encountered some trouble while installing Windows Home Server on a board with Intel's ICH10R in AHCI and/or RAID mode, I made a short how to on pushing the required drivers to the installation without burning an OP-DVD. This is it."
