Heh... I run two servers at home.  When I tell people what they do they
are impressed.  They ask me if I'm running Intel or AMD CPUs.  Then I
tell them that both servers are Sun SS5's, around 10 years old.  Totally
different attitude after that.  Some have even said I was lying.  No
machine that old can do server work!
