Migrate to Open Media Vault (OMV) NAS

My Ubuntu server crash last month for unknown reason. After some investigation finding out Ubuntu the latest update break the server, I am trying to get it restores hard. Almost 80% of my data in the main drive corrupted even when running RAID 1 setup. It is unimaginable update can do so much damage.

I decided to gave up reinstalling Ubuntu server since I have to reconfigure remote access and reinstall most of the software again. Why not just jump into NAS OS this time. FreeNAS doesn't work well for me previously so I tried Rockstor. However, it didn't work as well for some reason trying to get the installer to load. Without wasting too much time finding solution. I made final choice going look back at Open Media Vault (OMV).

The OMV installation was fast and easy to set up, this time I decided to install directly into 160GB SATA HDD which I plan to migrate into SSD drive in the future once solving the hard disk space issue first. The only problem I encounter was OMV plugins were somewhat limited. This is due to the copyright related so you have to find another way. OMV Extra. Once installed, those removed plugins will be made available.

So far the OMV is running great after I am familiar with the configurations and testing.The only thing I will be avoiding is updating and delaying at least three or one month cycle before applying. This is just to avoid having another unexpected crash.

Brunei Second Online Store - Shopping.com.bn

I was actually surprised finding the second online store in Brunei other than QQeStore. I have no idea when they started their online business. But it’s good to have a competitor around, right? You might ask how it compared to the current rival QQeStore. Shopping.com.bn is still a long way competing to their rival. You will be able to find out easily why I said that once you visit the Shopping.com.bn.
Good things about Shopping.com.bn No registrations fee required Many of their products price can be comparable to QQeStore They bundle free extra accessories (selected items) Doing international ordering Now, why I won’t buy at Shopping.com.bn

Simple, their warranty for the products makes me laugh after I look into the camera and Dell section. Many look alright for me. However, it seems like they never done their homework properly before listing their product information online. Check out the pictures I snap online, what kind of mistake did they made after looking at it?

HAHAHA!! Are you …
