The Raspberry Pi I have been running my server on for the last 2 years has basically become insufficient to handle what I am asking it to do, getting a few failures and slowdowns.
So Paul has lent me Mary’s old HP All-In-One PC so we can transition the server to an X64 system until my plan to build a dedicated server that can also do transcoding can be realised.
The transfer went well, well 69 audiobooks somehow got lost, but I had local backups, so restoration of them was easy enough.
At first I was quite worried as it turned out the system was struggling to run AudioBookShelf as well, but it just took a bit of time for the new installs to verify the files and rebuild some of the metadata.
The machine only has 8GB of memory, 2GB which has been pinched by the integrated GPU, but alas it only has a single SODIMM slot, so when I upgrade the RAM it will have to be a replacement of the existing SODIMM.
So far it’s running pretty well, I am away in Brighton right now and watching a movie that’s streaming from my studio!
What I Am Modelling
I started the week by finishing Illuminor Szeras for my Necrons, which completes the army for now.

Followed by the Tzaangors for Warhammer Quest, getting close to finishing Silver Tower!
