1. Why not sell it?
2. What's your network connection?
It was a gift from my brother so I won't be selling it. Also, my internet connection is a poor DSL line, common to the middle of nowhere. I am using a repeater to catch the wifi from a neighbor.

I like that idea. I was also planning on letting a few friends use it for shell accounts, for doing the same things I have plans for. I have recently became interested in the workings of networks and hardware so I decided to experiment that way with it but I might as well use that hard drive space for something. I have already pointed one of my subdomains to it.
This thing is 8 years old... so it sounds like a jet engine, with (if I remember right) 10 huge fans. It weighs in at about 70-80lbs. I need to get it networked in my basement so it doesn't make me crazy before I have it running full time.
