Being in a LAN such a fun!
I never thought to have two machines in a LAN was such a fun! Example, the other machine has a parallel port. This one has not. The other has a floppy drive. This one not. So I'm developing software in the other one, but comfortably sit at this one's console. And many other things.
But look, I'm only using slogin and scp. So, no file sharing. I do not imagine what such a thing would be, if with so little this machine (the more modern and physically comfortable cause of the keyboard and monitor) has become so powerful. And all this began with some LQ threads!
