So I’m Hubbin it up right now.. setting up an office server that will do filesharing at first, and then be an OpenBravo ERP/POS system server down the road. For those not in the know, OpenBravo is an awesome product for small businesses that need solid point-of-sale software. It’s done very well with The Hub, and we’ll eventually have two POSes networked via this new server - one for the retail counter and another for doing inventory and possibly to handle sales as well. I also set up a new wireless router running DD-WRT which will improve network reliability.
Just heard that 510pen will be attending to the Allied Media Conference this year, and they want to help set up a mesh network in Detroit! They seem to have a nice system figured out. It’s based on the ROBIN router firmware and this nifty little router that can even run with power-over-ethernet… so much fun!
