Given that I spent time and money on my FeeNAS node, I want to maximize its usage, so when a friend told me that I can use PXE and NFS to boot a diskless computer from the network, I thought it was the perfect opportunity to try somehing new and activate some more services under FreeNAS!
My HTPC lack a graphical display. I want to see the play length of my movies, the temp of my CPU and the upload/download information of my torrents.
I first thought to purchase a VFD based display, but aren’t we after year 2000? Therefore, a greenish old style display is not really appealing.
But, I found what I needed at Matrix Orbital, a Canadian based company specialized in VFD AND LCD display.
