I got tired of having so many machines. I'm down to, currently:
- Dual-CPU G4 (my desktop machine)
- Wife's Windows machine
- "toaster", my dedicated rsnapshot(.org) box for remote backups of my
Network is handled by a PIX 501 (about the size of a paperback book).
I'm already looking to find a smaller case for toaster. This fall I may
replace it with a mini-ITX box (see www.nanode.com for an example).
I'm starting to like small, quiet, fanless machines that do their job
and don't have to be 1Ghz to function properly.
