As a Mac user I’ve always used Time Machine for local backups. The only issue is that it requires plugging a drive directly into your machine or buying an Apple Time Capsule. At $200–$400 that’s not a cheap option for NAS backups. So I set out to create my own DIY Time Capsule using a 3TB Hard Drive and a Raspberry Pi.
For a laugh, I decided to try out a Linux distro on my old 700 Mhz G3 iBook (mid-2002 revision).
