About David McCabe (owner and editor of homeservershow.com)
I have over 20 years experience in the networking and Internet field. Some of my past experiences include 12 years as a technician for small and large networking environments including R&D and implementation of early technologies such as wireless networking and internet telephony. I also served over 6 years as VP Operations for a large regional Internet Service Provider. I have spent the last several years running a small business that provides Small Business Networking and Home Networking Convergence of the computer and the media room. Most recently, I attained Microsoft Certified Professional certification in Designing, Deploying and Managing a Network Solution for the Small and Medium-sized Business.
I am a true Geek and gadget freak. I love mobile devices, building PC’s and servers, Media Center, and Windows Home Server. I own a mixture of Windows PC’s, laptops, Apple products, and an Android phone. I enjoy working with all platforms and manufacturers. I try to stay up to date on technology and whats new every second of the day much to the chagrin of my family. They reap the benefits via home theatre, movie streaming, and on-the-go technology however.
I was on the Windows Home Server Beta prior to release and ran it on a home brew box. My first true Windows Home Server was a the HP MediaSmart Server EX475 and I currently run the EX495. I am also proud to have been nominated and named Windows Home Server MVP for 2009 and 2010, and 2011. I am currently serving as Surface MVP.
My writings can also be found at byte.com, anewdomain.net, SurfaceGeeks.com, and homeautomationforums.com.
I hope you enjoy this site and the podcast.
