I'm new on this forum and glad to join to the RPi crowd!
My target: Photo sync/backup server
Edimax BR-6104K (well, only the box from router)
Western Digital 320Gb USB2.0 MyPassport External drive (usb controller built-in on hard drive's PCB)
Some extra USB connectors
Lexmar platinum II 8Gb SDHC C10
Raspbian 2013-05-29 armel
Hamachi 188.8.131.52 for ssh connection
Samba server, read only access for easy sharing with other PCs
I managed to cut SD card for a half size of it, without any damage (as you can see on a photo the memory chip takes only a half of space inside the SD card) so I was able to fit the RPi in small box, also I took down the USB connector on RPi and as you can see I've soldered all the wires directly to PCB the only difference here, is that the HDD power wires I've soldered directly to the power plug on the back panel.
