[link] How to Build a Raspberry Pi File Server

Posted 29 January 2013 - 01:45 PM

http://www.jeremymor...pi-file-server/

A fun article that really goes step by step on how to make a file server out of the raspberry pi and a western digital 'mybook'.

So I found yet another cool use for a Raspberry Pi. You can actually use it as a file server, or more accurately a controller for a file server. All you need is your Pi and a nice external drive and you can serve files to anyone on your network. Itís pretty easy, Iíll show you how.

Thanks for the link! I remember seeing one a couple weeks ago where legos were used to create a raspberry pi supercomputer! Will be making me a couple of these soon!

Well yes but I was pointing out the implemention of legos and how massive it was. Yes I know the legos are just asthetic but you have to admit it is pretty cool what they did. I want to build one about half that size. Mabe even smaller.

The lego racks holding the boards. Although the networking is pretty neat also. (To me anyways)
