You got it John the drawer opens out to the left and hits the 2HDDs.

The monitor on the left is just hanging on a nail for setup JediTim.


Boy those Canadians are smart ah!

The quality of the pictures are so bad I couldn't tell what was connected or not connected. Can't believe Diehard could see the DVD player was in backwards.

Your right ImTheTypeOfGuy it's not the best

John has obviously been eating his carrots. This is the best pic I have without taking another picture. The old IDE drive probably threw you off as well. You can see the cable and power going in on the right side.


Ridiculous machine but it works like a charm.

-Old mini-itx

-Celeron D :wacko:

-Old 400W PSU

-8 matching 250gb WD HDD

-2GB ram (thats max for the MB :()


Its great because I'm a set it and forget it guy.


So much so that next job is moving over from a old win 2000 server with a intel MB from the mid 90s running a Intel Pentium II 300 MHz slot CPU and 4 - 40gb raided drives. It currently runs sometimes up to about 3-4 months without a reboot.


I should take some picks before it goes to the graveyard.

      Hey guys,
      I just bought a USB disc drive for my Surface 2, and upon plugging it in everything is working. I bought it so I could import songs from old CDs and put them onto my tablet. The only problem is, I don't know how to do this. I am able to click on the CD inserted into the drive, and all the songs show up but they are in .cda format. Basically, do any of you guys know how I would be able to get the songs off of the CD? I tried looking in Xbox Music, but there is not an option to import a CD at all.
      Any suggestions? Thanks in advance!

      I really enjoyed this one. I hope you do as well. From the blog:
      We are here to announce a new add-in for Windows Home Server 2011 but a simple mention of “Drive Extender” leads us down the path of talking about Drive Bender and StableBit for quite some time. We hit the news and it’s not all home server this week. There is so much in this episode you might have to listen twice!

      I know a lot of folks are running WHS 2011 inside a VM but I'm curious if anyone is running a virtual server on Windows Home Server 2011 in order load other OS's.
      I have this huge 2011 server and it doesn't do much during the day so I was thinking about running another OS on it to perform some of my media functions. Instead of loading 10 apps on the server I would only load the VM app and then load all the apps in a virtual environment instead of mucking up the server.
