Home Server Show #117

HomeServerShowLogoChristmas without Skype?  We all had a hard time believing that Skype had gone down!  So, we recorded this episode a little differently this time and you will certainly hear the difference.  With Skype down, Jim, John and Christian, cobbled up a quick solution and off we went!  It’s still a great show but I apologize for the audio.  We talk about Jim’s Drobo post and what is coming next and our featured guest is Christian Johnson.  Christian shares his latest Add-In with us and it’s upcoming release date.

The entire show can be heard at

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
