FreeNAS 11 upgrade

As previously posted, I run much of my home network (and this website) on a FreeNAS server, currently running version 9 after a recent downgrade from the failed version 10 release.  Recently, FreeNAS 11 was released as a stable version, so I have been eager to upgrade to the new …

Back from vacation

So there has been a noticeable drop in posting activity over the last couple of weeks, primarily because I spent the last couple of weeks with the family on vacation in Florida.  We spent the first part visiting Disney World, and the second half with the kids on a cruise …
