This NUC is absolutely tiny

This thing is bloody tiny, a really tidy little package.


Of course, I can't find a screwdriver small enough to remove the tiny screws securing the 2.5" bracket so I'm stuck for the moment until I work out where my Jewelers' screwdrivers are...

[Edit] I'm an absolute muppet. The SSD just slides in from the front, no need to unscrew anything. I'll put this down to either too much or too little coffee this morning. Yeesh.

New toys to play with over the weekend

Some new gear to play with, just in time for what looks to be a wet weekend.




The MicroServer isn't actually new; it's just been sitting on my floor for a couple weeks waiting for me to order more RAM so it can actually do, you know, anything.


The NUC is going to be a Home Theater PC - normally, I'd be sticking Debian on it without a second though but I want to run the Foxtel Go app on it and that means Windows. Oh well. On the upside, if the NUC works out as the new HTPC, that frees up the Mac Mini that's currently doing that job.
