This is a very strategic location. Take a close look at the map!

There is a discussion in the forums if you would like to read a little more about the meetup or ask a question. Several guys are looking for riders to share in the driving expense so be sure to read this thread.
We will be doing a live podcast, hopefully some breakout sessions on storage and media topics too. We’ll have a lot of gear to showcase and some give away items as well. Last year Drobo sponsored the meetup and this time they are providing a Drobo FS to one lucky attendee.
VENDORS – I need some help. If you or your company would like to help us pull this off we really need sponsors. Contact me directly at “podcast” (AT) homeservershow.com. We need a main sponsor, gear to demo, and give away items. Pizza wouldn’t hurt either.
Stay tuned to the forum post linked above and the podcast for more information. Contact me if you have any questions.
