When I Know Some Guys kicked off, we bought a couple of Transporter devices to handle our file-syncing needs without having to rely on Dropbox or another hosted service. Unfortunately, Nexsan killed off Transporters a couple years back, and, though they still kind of work, it's been a back-burnered project for us to find a good replacement.

By Karsten Lehmann | 11/4/19 11:24 AM | Infrastructure - Notes / Domino | Added by John Oldenburger

After 14 and a half years at Intec, I’m moving on to pastures new. I’ve learned a lot and developed in ways that were never envisaged by anyone when I started at Intec. I’m very fortunate to have had a company that backed me, and I think we’ve both benefited greatly. But I’ve always sought to embrace opportunities and accept responsibilities throughout my career. And now is no different.
