How to Install a Micro SD Card in an HP Proliant Microserver (Gen 8)

Recently, I bought ourselves a new microserver to replace our existing home server which I built six or seven years ago.

Incoming Gadget – Logitech G930 Wireless Gaming Headset

Just a quick update. Given that my Logitech UE9000 wireless headphones broke at the end of June 2014 I’ve had to use other headphones until I sorted out my warranty claim. I’ll cover that in more detail soon but it took me four weeks to convince Logitech USA to replace the headphones as I purchased …
