Did you install something like FreeNAS on netbook to use as File Server ?I was going to buy Raspberry Pi for my NAS - Network attached storage, then I realize I have a netbook with no working screen. So installed Windows 7 on it and will be using as NAS, Torrent downloader and all. Don't have to keep netbook running all the time as configured it for WAKE ON LAN.
Wake on Lan is working with my Android Phone too
Technology does make a mess
So now I have NAS, Torrent Engine, Applications and everything you can do with Network Attached Computer.
Now would like to make a cabinate with Fans to accomodate all this .. Probably a wooden cabinet.
