A while back, we close to filling up the partition on our desktop machine with photos, so I decided to get a second hard drive. In the end, instead of a hard drive, I decided to by the WD My Book World Edition which is a basic Linux server with a 1TB hard drive.
Here’s my notes on what I’ve done with it so far:
Install some useful optware packages (e.g. cron, perl etc)
Re-configure the system using prep_whitelight.sh
Write script to tweet system status
Write script to report stats to MySQL database online
Build views to show the stats
