raspi 3 and usb hard drive

Using a 16GB sd card for a basic cli raspbian system (no desktop environment whatsoever) is more than enough. However, it is very limited to really enjoy the awesome minidlna software I installed. So I ended up attaching a 1TB usb hard drive to my raspi 3.

The first thing to notice is that the power supply works fine supporting both devices (raspi and hard drive).

The second thing is that I can now finally enjoy the UPnP service for hours and hours during these cold winter afternoons.

Note: I've been watching SG Atlantis all afternoon. What a great Saturday :)
