SWMBO spotted the Challenge L in the garage.  It's hard to camouflage, that
one (the Challenge, not SWMBO) since it sounds like I've got an airliner

"This black one is even bigger and louder that the beige one."

"That's why it's in the garage."

doesn't have a framebuffer, anyway.  It's only 10baseT, so massive
fileserving would seem unlikely.  I know some of you guys have _big_ stuff
at home, and I'm not just talking McGuire and his Cray.  I need a story
here, so give me some ideas, and, while you're at it, some real-life
examples of what you do with your BigStuffAtHome.
