As seen in my previous post, I’ve been having problems with some harddrives in my workstation. I’ve also had some problems with my TV’s digital box, a Motorola VIP1963.
At first there was some trouble with time-shift not working, but this could be resolved by simply rebooting the device. This wasn’t really worth noting because this device is constantly on and never rebooted, so I guess it was bound to happen sooner or later.
Suddenly the other day, the device rebooted on it’s own, and when it came back up it gave me an error message saying that the harddrive could not be found. This message was in swedish:
I’ve just finished transferring the homepage to my new server.
The new hardware is basically a fanless ASUS AT5NM10-I. The mainboard is equipped with dual core Atom CPU’s and 2GB of RAM. The passive cooling makes this computer absolutely quiet. The computer case Morex 5689 is also fanless and have grating on all sides for ventilation. The PSU is an external AC/DC converter, delivering 12 Volts to the mainboard. This solution leaves any heat that normal PSU’s generates outside of the case. The case is mounted to the wall inside a cupboard. A mount plate is included to ease the installation to vertical or horizontal surfaces.
