    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.

    • OMG I'm watching HGTV off of my HDHomeRun Connect!
      I just subscribed to HD HomeRun Premium TV to see what it is all about.  Hello, I'm watching HGTV now!  Over ten years cutting the cord and this is a first.  All of those years have been with SiliconDust and the HDHR.  I had the older white ones with two coax inputs and I recall the move to the newer unit with only a single coax input as mind blowing!  I had two of the older ones so coax and splitters were a big mess.  Now, I have OTA and a good handful of cable channels.  I'm configuring it on Plex as I type this up.

    • Microsoft announced a new Surface device last night, the Surface Go.  The announcement felt forced as leaks were dropping all over the place so it looks like the Surface Team just said, "what the heck," post it! 
       
      It's a confusing addition to the family. Remember Surface 3?  The Go is a much improved device but I'll have to get my hands on it in order to fully judge it.  I loved the 3 and still own it with a dock.
       
      It starts at $399 which is great but the hardware is a bit limited at that price point.  It starts with the Pentium Gold 4415y processor. Here is a comparison to show you some characteristics versus the Core i3. It also starts at 4Gb of RAM and a 64Gb eMMC drive.  It's only 1.15 pounds and will have LTE options in the future.
       
      I've read a ton of posts on this device where there is "target market" confusion.  Read it for yourself straight from Microsoft's mouth. "Empower your workforce with the lightest, most compact Surface yet"

       
       
      Here is the announcement post - https://www.microsoft.com/en-us/surface/business/surface-go
       
      Most articles are comparing it to iPad's and Chromebooks and although i think it will be a good alternative to the Chromebook I don't think it is a direct compare to the iPad nor targeting it.  I think it is a build that came from direct feedback from the working market.  A light portable with pen ability that doesn't cost $1500 if it is dropped. Pretty simple.
       

       
      My biggest disappointment is the keyboard.  Yup, gotta add $99 if you don't want to type on glass.
       
      Will enthusiasts buy it? Couch PC? Reader by the bed?  This little Surface has a lot of merit on paper so we will see how it holds up when it ships on August 2nd.  Let me know down below if you are going to get one.
