After I built a system for myself months ago. I got an order from a friend to build a similar system. From this I built a workshop and documented it in slides. The result is now available on SlideShare.
In the year 2003 I had used this tablet in the university. I got the scripts as PDF and could make my notes. Digitization was not even a concept. With my bachelor thesis I was working on RFID. Today you pay with it at the cash desk. Wow, those were still times. I had used the Tablet/Notebook until 2010, when the iPad came out.
Meanwhile I got a Raspberry PI 4 and built a new NAS system. Here I installed a Debian Buster Lite and connected a Seagate 5TB 2.5″ hard disk. (Picture shows a WD HDD as test system) With Samba I also have access from a Windows computer. The speed is very good. I can transfer about 75MB/s over the network. So far the heat development is eye-catching and is monitored it.
Today I migrated all my Microsoft SQL Server databases from Windows to Linux. There were no problems.
The SQL Server runs on Windows 10 previously and the half-yearly updates annoyed me and so I switched to Linux. It’s great how nice and stable the whole thing works.
