I'm with kion...a dual Xeon sounds good.

It's upgrading (compiling), backing up (bzip2), helping spica upgrade (distcc), regenerating my Bayesian corpi, and playing Massinova, all without flinching or complaining.

It's such a good workhorse...hard to believe it's almost 2 years old. I ask so much of it on a daily basis...web server, email server (smtp/pop), NFS, IRC server, router, database server (both postgres and mysql), all in addition to its regular duties as a desktop. I'm surprised it doesn't just collapse under the load sometimes.

Deneb, like spica, is my baby...one of the few things (or people, for that matter) I am very protective of.

Update 1:30 PST: /me bitchslaps SBC for rebooting a router without telling anybody about it. Although, they do earn points for knowing what Linux is, and knowing that they're using PAP authentication for their PPPoE connections.

Update (again) 1:32 PST: /me bitchslaps AIM for being stupid. Again.

Mmm....oh yes. I'd like to build a nice dual athlon/pentium system for my new router. Which would then pull duties as a router/firewall/cvs server/webserver/mailserver/etc.

Though I'm still thinking about a seperate dedicated fileserver for nfs (well, coda maybe) and samba mounts.

Then there's the nice multimedia box......mmm......

And probably all of these can be combined into one or two boxes. ;-)

Are you a comp.sci major? I should hope not...'cause let me let you in on a little secret: this is normal for CSCs. If you don't think like this, and you are a CSC, find another major.

Take a look at my friends list. Most of these are people I know (and hang out with) in real life on a regular basis (i.e. every weekend). Just ask muleherd, whom you may (or may not) know. (I'm assuming since you found this entry from his friends page, you have at least some casual association with him.)

My journal is the official troll stomping ground. Maybe, after Gulf War 2.0, I should privatize all my old posts (you're not getting any new ones any time soon :)), to coincide with the (inevitable?) privatization of the Iraqi oil industry. With no journal, the trolls will be homeless and subsequentlly die. Everyone knows Bush would gladly trade trolls for oil!
