Home Server Show #115

HomeServerShowLogoSo Dave took a week off and now is back and ready for action!  So is show #115!  Actually, it was just bad luck that Dave’s vacation landed right in the middle of the biggest news period for Windows Home Server this year.  This is a long show and there is plenty to digest.  We have news, forums, the Orlando meetup, and plenty of Drive Extender and HP talk.  Beware though, Dave has a cold and cough and is a bit cranky throughout!  This was a fun episode actually.  As always, the live ustream chat was very helpful and interactive with the show’s content.  By the way, you can join in live chat each week on Wednesdays, 8pm Central at

Home Server Show #114

HomeServerShowLogoIs this the beginning of the end for Windows Home Server or just a new beginning?  Did we let Microsoft off the hook on the podcast?  Is Drive Extender really that big of a deal?  Is Vail really a fail?  You decide after listening to all we have to say about Microsoft’s announcement about pulling drive extender out of Vail.  We have a lot to talk about on this episode and several folks joined up to do just that.

We experienced a few audio issues during recording so be prepared for some odd sounds here and there.  I hope I got all the pops and tones edited out but I may have missed a few.  I apologize for that as we strive to deliver the best sound possible in this podcast.
