home project update

Okay, so I haven’t been updating as much as I would like.

Regardless, I have been busy.

I am happy to report that my VM of Trixbox is working fantastically.

I am equally happy to report that my ZenOSS installation is good, too.  I had only one instance where the network just sort of disappeared but I restarted it and all has been good.

We had some neighbors over and they commented on how many computers I have.  They said, “Gee, we count four right here and we only have laptop that we’re borrowing.”  After they left, I started thinking about that and I was a little embarrassed.

I have way more computers than the average guy and while I do a lot of cool things, (at least cool to me), it means nothing.  I mean, yeah, I can say “Look at all the cool stuff I do!”  But the reality is that our phones work, our video is displayed on our TV, our iTunes are played through our stereo, our Xbox as XBMC on it, our Wii gets the weather, you can get WiFi in every inch of our house, and all of this monitored.

Yeah, it’s probably overkill, but it’s fun for me.  It’s what I do to relax and it helps me keep up on the latest tech out there.
