TSR-The Server Room – Shownotes – Episode 01

Topics for Discussion on this episode:

Home Server ISP options
Can I run a server out from Your own home? If not what alternatives I have available?
Does it worth it?
Should I use My ISP provided Modem or perhaps replace it with a 3rd party solution?

I will use the first 15-20 minutes to give my two cents about the above and then I open the phonelines for comments / opinions / debate from the audience.

If no callers then I just continue discussing some parts of these in more details.

Voicemail and Calling queue configured on the DID|VOIP|SIP line…During the show calls are placed in a queue if the line is busy and when offline calls go to a voicemail so You can feel free to leave your comments and ideas that way if You prefer..
