Restricting access to Sitecore Media Items

Posted 03 March 2015

I recently had a requirement to lock down some media items (PDFs in this case) within Sitecore so that only certain logged in users could access them. In principle this is trivially easy - ensure the users are in the right roles, remove read access from the extranet\anonymous user and grant read access to the specific roles. However, as always, the devil is in the details.

Setting up OSMC on a Raspberry Pi

Posted 11 February 2015

I've had a Raspberry Pi (original model B) sitting around at home for about a year, and I've been wondering what to do with it for most of that time. I've finally decided that as we're decluttering the house* we need a better way to access all the music that currently sits on the media shares of an original Windows Home Server that we use for backups and media storage.
