Pi and ownCloud

Am running my Pi with ownCloud and a 1Tb ext USB drive.
Pretty easy to setup. Downloaded a ready made ownCloud image, and using dlinkddns to update ip address. Have a BT hub 5 which is easy to setup when you know which settings to change.
I am using ownCloud clients on our home PC's and on the boys PC's at Uni, and all works very nicely, if a bit slow.
Has been running 24/7 for 2 weeks now with no problems, seems pretty reliable so far.
Anyone else using ownCloud ? how are you getting on with it, speed, reliability etc. ?
Cheers

I set it up using a guide instead of an image, it seems to work well.

Its a little bit glitchy when downloading, it hangs when it starts, then starts going after about 10 seconds.

I know speed seems to be limited by the internet, not the Pi.

Typical, say everythings Ok, and next minute it all goes pear shaped !
Today I noticed all my users were running out of storage, and I couldn't up their quotas.
Turned out everything was being saved on the SD card and not on the external USB drive !
Anyway, after learning a few basic linux commands I managed to move the owncloud files onto the ext drive and change the config.php to point to the correct dive and folder, and now its all working as it should (careful now!) and is actually quite alot faster than before. Hooray ......
