This week, you could be mistaken that you’re listening to the Build Your Own Box Podcast, as the guys talk a lot of DIY, from building a pfSense router, an all-in-one PC, and adding secure storage to your home environment using the new ioSafe N2 NAS.

 Jim tells us about his recent network upgrades, including his home network hardware and more recently his Internet connection, as well as adding a pfSense router to add some Internet filtering and to stabilize the performance of the upgraded connection.

Following from a post on the Facebook group from Jim Barton, the guys talk about cloud storage, and accumulating storage across the multiple offerings.  Be sure to check out the Cloud Storage Know It Guyde for Cloud Storage options.

After some Windows Phone chat, Kevin talks about his recent purchase of an ioSafe N2 NAS, which brings you technology from Synology along with ioSafe fireproof hardware.


Andrew talks about a DIY project from our friends over at ZDNet to build your own All-in-One PC, using the Intel Loop L5 Barebone System.  The guys discuss some of the merits of building your own PC, versus buying pre-built systems.

To close out the show, Kevin talks about some of the deals available on Office 365, as well as the inclusions you receive in the package pricing.
