I use a Logitech K800 illuminated keyboard + M570 trackball for the bedroom HTPC (which also doubles as generic PC). While the K830 seems nice, I just can't give up having a full keyboard + mouse (or...

+1 on the Logitech K400. It can typically be found for $25-30 but it does go on sale every now and then to $20.

One thing that keeps the household happy is I never touch/mess with the stuff that's stable and already in production. While upgrading may be painless, I'd rather not risk it. :p

Lack of sufficient free time. Flash drive is inside the chassis and the placement of the original server makes it somewhat difficult to extract. I actually have a LimeTech AVS-10/4 pre-built server...

That's not how it's marketed (at least not when I built my first server which is actually still running unRAID 4.3). One of the key features in the advert/website is providing some form of parity...

Hi Nick,

Yep, I read this before already :) (I'm also a member of the SD forums). Now the only thing I'm still pondering is how much to pledge ($30, $60 or $259). I already have quite a number of...

I'm curious, where in the EULA does it actually say that Microsoft has to keep providing guide data? Most of the EULAs and TOS I've read are there for protection of the developer rather than the user.

It's not. I remember checking prices at Amazon and taking into account frequent sales on HDHR units, buying hardware separately and going for just the $60 perk saves you a hundred bucks or two.

Technically, the Pi already has RAM built in and storage cost would have been the same/similar either way. The RTC is also optional (I don't bother).

If you're super concerned, maybe just limit the time for scheduled tasks (ergo, index generation) to 2-3 hours. I believe by default, scheduled maintenance is from 2am-5am.
