Plex on Pi

This weekend's project will include building a Plex server on a Raspberry Pi. 

I have yet to identify a suitable host for this operation. I may need to buy a new Pi4. Currently I have Nagios running on one and of course my Pihole on the other. I'm not sure either can handle the load of a Plex server. Not that it will get much use, but still. You never know. I will have to experiment with the functionality and use-cases. I know it can host all sorts of media, including but not limited to photos, movies, and music. So, we will have to see. I will load it up on the Pi3 running Nagios and if it seems useful, I'll grab a cheap Pi4 from the Amazons for a more permanent home. I have some new storage for photo backups arriving soon as well. That might just tie the whole thing together nicely.
