After reading a couple of articles about being a startup in Denmark I finally pushed myself to actually make my dream come true.

Together with my Asrock ION 330 it is the perfect storage solution to use Kodi (formerly known as XBMC). I myself know enough about storage and software to be able to set up my own server and ZFS pool and I did do this in the past. But: I’m amazingly happy about the fact I did go for Drobo. Why? As you just read there was a disk error. As I only have 1 disk redundancy I panicked a little, I went to my default web shop for disks, ordered a new disk (figured I could go for a 4TB model instead of the 2TB model that broke) and let it ship to my parents. The next day the disk arrived and I asked my totally non-tech-savvy father to replace the disk. He unpacked the disk, went to the...
