So we now have a home server. I got a used computer off eBay, loaded it up with hard drives and voila, home server. All our files are saved there and it does automated backups. It is running a webserver that hosts a personalized start page. Also, as shown below, it is running iTunes which can be remotely operated with smartphone apps. Barb, Anne & I are each running remote software on our phones and I also have it on my tablet. It may be even more geeky there is also a mini computer hooked up to the TV which can play videos we have stored on the server. This can also be controlled by apps running on smartphones.
