Home mini server? Easy and convenient

Many people associate with the word “server” with a large expensive computer installed in a separate room, and with the constantly gloomy system administrator on duty near this farm

Even judging only by the names of these diseases (in the foreign press, respectively, “text neck”, “smartphone finger”, “dry eye”), there is a feeling that we are talking about some sort of gang warfare. In fact, it is: these near-computer diseases are fighting against us, the near-computer population, fighting on all fronts. Not so long ago, electronic gadgets have come into our lives, and already more than 80% of white-collar workers in all developed countries suffer from symptoms of these diseases. In 2011, scientists from the British Physiotherapy Continue reading
