    Home Server Show 306- Final Episode

    Home Server Show 306- Final Episode

    That day has come! We all come up on “that day,” either with joy or dismay.  I have a little bit of both that I’m publishing the last episode of the Home Server Show.  It all started in 2008 and now comes to end.  My podcasting is not over however.  I have a brand new show and I’ll talk about that in this last episode.  I’ll also talk about how HSS started and we will bookend this journey with Ian Dixon who was my first interview and on the first episode.

    Check out RESET at mccabe.io

    I gave brief thanks and mentions during this short episode.  Honestly, I could have spent an hour listing people.  I wanted to type them out here.  I don’t know why but I really didn’t want choke up during that last episode.  Seems silly right?

    The other thing is I’ve stared at this post for hours.  I can’t possibly list everyone.  I am going to leave someone out and it’s not on purpose.  I’ve aged folks.  Why do you think I started a forum?  So I could ask questions to you guys!  I can’t possibly list you all and I’m sorry if you don’t see your name here.

    Many thanks to all who have interviewed with me, talked to me about their gear, have and continue to participate in my many forums.  You have participated in all my crazy ideas, my popular ones and my failed ones!  Thank you as well to everyone who has co-hosted with me on Home Server Show and Surface Geeks.   There is no way I could list all those people but Chris Lux, John Zajdler, and Jim Collison stick out in my mind.  What a wonderful time we had together during the HSS Version 1 days.  Jim, thanks for sticking with me

    Speaking of hey days. Ian Dixon, Andrew Edney, Alex Kuretz, Terry Walsh, Phillip Churchill, Christopher Courtney, Kevin Schoonover, John Stutsman, Chris Kenney, Rich O’Neal, Mike Faucher, Jose Ortiz, Michael Martis, Tim Daleo, Jim McCarthy, Jim Clark, Garry Whittaker, Dewain Robinson, Kyle Reddoch, John Wiskowski, Darren Cohen, Synology, WD, Icy Dock, and you.  Yes, you reading this.  That’s who I have to thank. All who have listened.  All who have read.

    Every single one of the V1 Add-In Developers.  You guys rocked.

    All the top posters in the HSS Forums.

    Meetup attendees. You are a crazy bunch!

    Microsoft.  WHS Team, Ex Softie, now Amazon Alexa: Charlie Kindel, Surface Team, Windows Insider Team. The Indianapolis Microsoft Store for treating me like a “big shot.”  Nanette Winter, the community director, for coming through with all my requests.

    Thanks for a great ride.  I hope you like RESET and I’ll see you in the forums.

    The Luma vs Eero Testing Podcast HSS 303

    I’ve got Luma and I don’t know what to do with it!  If you follow the HSS Forums you no doubt have heard about the Luma debacle that is unfolding. We go over that as well as hammer out a testing method for the Luma that I have in hand.  When I’m done testing I’m giving it away! Listen to find out how.

    Well also cover some news.  I’ve got Patron shout outs, D-Link has some new cameras that you will want to hear about, I’ve got a follow up on Ecobee, Spruce for SmartThings, and Meetup 2016.  It’s a long show but it’s a handsome one, Clark!

Great Home Storage Podcast!!

This is a great podcast that focuses on all issues related to home storage solutions form Windows Home Server to NASs, to streaming media, product reviews etc. I really enjoy the camraderie between Dave and Jim. Definitely worth a listen!

Lost It's Way

This was once the definative show about Home Servers of all form from Windows Home Server to Drobo to DIY Servers, but this show seems REALLY lost at the moment. The host Dave McCabe seems too busy with his personal life to focus on an agenda for the show. The show is just a rambling discussin of home automation talk, cloud services, kickstarter projects and gadgets. There are other shows for those topics. Time for a reboot of the program and recommitment to the show title.

Informative and Entertaining

Keep up the good work. Makes my commute much more enjoyable and educational.
