I got the beta release for Windows Home Server(WHS) on Friday. I was planning on installing it this weekend until I ran into a road block. I knew from the beginning that the plan for this release of Windows was not initially going to be offered as a box version and that this is a Release Candidate and that it shouldn't be taken as the final version. The road block I ran into was the Hard drive requirements. WHS requires 65GB to install. 65, I have lots of 40 GB drives and even a 60GB drive, my next largest are 2 200GB and they are currently in a RAID setup that I don't want to break. So my plans for the weekend were shot as I could not even install the software to see the interface for myself. I was really looking forward to playing with it. I guess that will have to wait until I get more drives, or the hardware becomes available and the cost isn't too high.
We are having a baby! In an series of events over the past week, Precia and I ended up at the Hosiptal last night so she could get an IV and get re-hydrated. Once that was started they decided that they needed to check on the baby and make sure it was doing ok. So at 10:30pm we had our first ultrasound. It was absolutly amazing to see those images on the screen and to hear our baby's heart beat 165 bpm, right down the middle for normal at this size. We found out that we are almost exactly 9 weeks along, so hopefully only another 3 weeks of this morning sickness stuff and then it will be smooth sailing, until April 22. We were discharged around 11:30 and made the long trip home. Precia is feeling much better today, better than she has felt since the morning sickness started. So now the goal is to stay hydrated and get through the next 3 weeks.
