Windows Home Server Code2Fame Challenge Winners

By Mauricio Freitas, in , posted: 28-Sep-2007 10:02

One of the cool things you can have on a Windows Home Server is the ability to have Add-ins running from the console - so you don't need to actually RD to your server.

The Windows Home Server team have just announced the winners of the Code2Fame Challenge, a competition to award those most interesting Add-ins for Windows Home Server.

The 1st Prize went to Whiist, which is an Add-in I am already using, and allows you to create websites and photo albums from your content, all without having to touch IIS or any other configuration.

The 2nd prize went to Jungle Disk, an on-line backup solution that stores your content in the cloud using Amazon S3 services. And the 3rd prize went to Community Feeds for Windows Home Server, an Add-in that pulls down RSS feeds and make them avaialble to connected Xbox 360 or media externders.

I didn't know about Jungle Disk before. It is currently in a private beta and I am trying to get a copy to review. It sounds good - I already use Carbonite to backup three laptops around the house, but I would like to have an off site backup for my Windows Home Server. Let's see how it goes.
