When I say all Microserver, I mean ALL Microserver.  The entire episode is dedicated to "the little server that could."  This thing can do it all and my guests have done it!  I'm talking with Chris Kenney, the admin of The Home Server Show forums, John Stutsman, and John Zajdler.  Stutsman is often referred to as "Mr. Microserver" and John Zajdler is "Mr. Modification."  If there is a mod or a way to do something with a Microserver chances are one of these guys have done it.

A big thanks to these guys for sitting with me and talking servers!  Jim Collison has the night off. Well, we sent him off to work!
