Awesome Airport: Austria

I've had many posts I've been wanting to write, but I haven't because I want to put so much into them. I'm taking a different approach now. I think it's better for me to just write down a little bit to get it "out there".  I can always go back and add more later. So, let's get started... The Vienna airport in Austria is quite good great!

HyperXenBox at home

I needed another linux server ... I needed to test some new hardware to stay up to date ... I wanted to play with a new toy and I may be traveling soon, so it has to be compact. I decided on the Intel® NUC Kit D54250WYKH and ordered the parts off Newegg (instead of Amazon because Newegg was $50 less due to taxes). First off, Kudos to Intel on the unboxing experience: [video width="1920" [...]
