    Well I lied, here's the update.

    - Acquired a copy of server 2012 and currently have that going as the main OS.

    - Have windows remote desktop setup so the server is now officially "headless".

    - Using filezilla + noip.com now have an FTP server setup.

    - Using Playstation Media Server as my media center for streaming to my PC and xbox/ps3.

    - Realized it's time to upgrade my home network so grabbed a NETGEAR WNDR4000-100NAR N750 Wireless Dual Band Gi... and a dual band card for my desktop. Which should fix my incredibly slow transfer rates between this and the server.

    - In the process of setting up a vm to mess around with ubuntu. Hopefully to the point where I'm comfortable enough to make the switch to using it as the main server OS.


    To do..

    - Find somewhere to stick the server besides my closet.

    - Get back into web development and host my own website? Yay productive boredom

    - Find more random uses for the server.
