I don't have any *big* iron at home, but if I did, I'd use it for
fileserving, learning Java, honing my PHP skills, diving into Postgres,
and a whole bunch of stuff that you *can* do on a workstation, but is
much more pleasant to do on a server.  The fact that it would be a piece
of Big Iron, or even Medium Iron, is the icing on the cake.  Running a
Challenge or an Origin in your house is soo much cooler than anything
else, and *my* wife tends to agree - once she understands it.
