I strongly suspect that this printer is one of those that requires most of the "heavy lifting" to be done by the computer's CPU rather than being able to do the work itself. As such it is very unlikely that this will work on the ARM CPU in the Bubba. Also, the scanner part is even less likely to wor...

Another thing... Is the ftp downloader supposed to be able to download files > 2Gb? The manual does not mention any limit, and indeed shows a 2.2Gb file in the sample screen (although this is a torrent). I have had two downloads fail in a row, both needed a reboot to get the server running again and...

Is there a way to roll back this 'upgrade' to the previous version?

At the moment the downloads are useless and render the product "Unfit for purpose"

Slower spin, but not stopped, could really help Bubba. Hopefully what these drives do is they will run slow after a while at idle, then will still do reads and writes when at the low speed, but will spin up to full speed if more than a token amount is written (with no noticeable delay). If so then h...

I have problems with downloads after the upgrade too :(

It seems that the downloaded does not close the file when it has finished downloading, so the last buffer-full is not written.

If you then clear the file from the downloads list it flushes the buffer and you can use the file - but it is a pain.

Slot for a laptop lock

My Bubba holds 500Gb of my precious files and is nicely small and portable. This is actually a problem! It would be so easy for someone to steal it! Is it possible to add a slot in the back panel suitable for fitting a laptop lock of this type What would be even better would be for it to be possible...

I have not been able to repeat it but I will keep an eye on it. Interestingly when the downloader was dead I could still log in from a different machine (or a different browser) but as soon as I went to the mail page or the download page it stopped. Trying to get the same browser to log in again fai...

Running a CVS server

Has anyone tried running a CVS server on a Bubba?

Is it worth doing?

Is the speed good enough?

Is it better to treat it as a local CVS stored on a network drive?

Any thoughts?

I crashed my Bubba :(

I was hoping that my new Bubba would be lovely and rock solid... However, today I tried to run 7 simultaneous ftp downloads on it at the same time. After a while the web-admin interface stopped responding and the files on disk were not growing any more. I tried restarting Apache and that let me log ...

Backing up photos

I have a digital camera - well, who doesn't. Of course this means that I have over 10GBytes of photos! I have backups on DVDs that I make every now and then just in case... But, what happens if something really bad happens like the house burns down? I have a "fireproof" safe that I keep some backups...

Seems like a reasonable request - quite a lot of Bubba users seem to want a CMS. Would it be that much extra work to ship with something like php-Fusion (or a lighter alternative) pre-installed? Maybe you could have alternative images that are loaded before shipping that are selected when you order ...

Everything is up to date, so I have done what you suggested and added a script that maps a drive, with hard-coded password, on boot.

Not very secure, but at least all the PCs can now print!

Ok, thanks. So, to sum up: If you access: \\bubba\home\ ..from your XP home machine, and entering any users name and password, the printing works? But before this, it doesn't? Exactly - and the problem is that with machines being used by various family members of differing computer skills, I don't ...
