Average Server Size Please, on Home Server Show 255

We talk about enthusiast sized servers all the time but how about something a little more normal?  John Stutsman, Christopher Courtney, and Chris Kenney all join in to discuss what could possibly be an “average” server.  Well, they listened to me talk about it! I need to let these guys talk more often.  Never fear, we can always do another one as I think we barely scratched the surface of the topic.

I do give some hints of some upcoming reviews. If you are a Media Center fan you will want to tune in for that.

Don’t forget the “3-2-1” rule of thumb for backups. 3 copies, 2 mediums, 1 offsite.

Yep, it has been a while.  We have been out of commission mainly due to problems in my schedule but we are back this week with a great show.  Mike Martis is off to the races today so I am joined today by Paul Braren (tinkertry.com).  We discuss the completion of my rack project, my experience with an Arc 2U server case, and talk in depth with Paul on his recent painful  upgrade to 150/50 internet service.  Paul gives us an overview on the 3 current routers he has been testing.  A special thanks to Paul for his time and expertize today and please visit his links below for more detailed information.
