It’s not a long weekend but I wish it was so I could spend more time tinkering with my Windows Server 2012 install. Installing it on my Shuttle ST20G5 was a whole lot easier than installing Windows Home Server 2011 or Windows Small Business Server 2011 Essentials on the same 7 year old hardware.
I decided to install Server 2012 because I wanted something more lean and customizable — even if it means sacrificing a bit of convenience features. It’s also a great way to familiarize myself with the latest Server OS from Microsoft. I may even try uninstalling GUI, if things go well enough.
The ASUS RT-N66U continues to perform. I’ve experienced some 5 GHz issues with my Macbook Air and my brother reported problems with his iPhone 5 but I haven’t had a single issue with my iPad. I have no idea what’s going on with that but the most important thing is the WDS which is still running fine.
I’m still working my way through Final Fantasy XIII-2. Like the game’s framerate, it’s been an uneven experience. I haven’t darted towards the the end yet but seeing how I just amassed a number of Origin games thanks to this little coupon code, I’m reminded by the fact that I have a bunch of games waiting in the wings.
