My new Raspberry Pi 3!

My new Raspberry Pi 3!

I've got a little project in mind - I'd like to build a little storage server to back some things up to. It doesn't have to be anything terribly fancy, provide blisteringly fast speeds, or have store a huge number of files, so I've opted for a Raspberry Pi 3 to power the thing. It arrived just recently, and since the service I got from Pimoroni was excellent, I thought I'd post about it here. If you're after some bits for your raspberry pi, then they are a good reputable place to get them from.

In order to access the storage space on the server, I'll be configuring some samba shares (linux's implementation of Windows file shares, which is completely interoperable). Would anyone be interested in a tutorially kind of post on how you configure Samba? Let me know in the comments below.
