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.

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