I just wanted to take a minute and express my gratitude for such a outstanding guide and the accompanying forums.

What and invaluable wealth of information you have created.

I was up and running a Ubuntu server in one night, I never though I would say that!

You have opened up a whole new world for me.

Thank you
Sean

Wow Sean, that's really nice of you to say that. Thank you :clap:

The main website came about after my struggle to find decent up to date documentation on how to do stuff. I was forever bricking my OS after following duff guides so I started to document how to rebuild everything from scratch. I then had this crazy idea that I couldn't be the only person on the planet trying to build a media server from the ground up so I put all my notes up on the internet (after tidying them up somewhat ;)). At the same time I created a blog to give people one-on-one help when they got stuck. That blog soon turned into a right mess of posts so I started this forum.

My dream is that one day the forum will be full of people helping each other. :)

Ian.

I'd just like to add to the plaudits for this site. I came across it after I had physically put together the hardware for my mediaserver (which I also want to use as a playground/lab for playing with other sotware/tech). I've not quite gotten through the whole guide so far, but everything so far is working great (OK, a few very minor niggles which are specific to my hardware: sending monitoring emails).

I've been using Ubuntu 11.10 Oneiric Ocelot 64-bit Server Edition and I put KDE desktop on it rather than Gnome. Am really looking forward to going through the rest of the guide. Need to configure flexraid next.

Thanks again

John

not sure. I can try to move all of the videos into one topic if you want me to.
