Well, I sold my secondary computer to David last night. I think he was quite the happy camper, as it was quite a bit less than what he thought he was going to have to spend, and the system is fairly decent. I'm amazed at how much it costs to buy an entire system, when you can put the pieces together for quite a bit less. I suppose not everyone is comfortable doing it, plus you have to shop around for good deals to really make it worth while.

tinboy.com lives! I installed the Personal Web Server on my main computer and moved over the main files. For some reason, I got a bunch of errors (probably Windows Millenium). I uninstalled and reinstalled and it went much better the second time around. I still want to get a web cam put together, but I'm having problems with my current one. Netmeeting locks up (sniff). I may have to actually call tech support.

Hmm. Took tinboy.com off the air last night. Having a second PC is a little unnecessary at the moment. What I may do is use tinboy.com's IP address on my current PC and install Personal Web Server. Then I'd probably just leave my current PC on.

The only down side with that is that my current PC sounds like a jet engine taking off, with all the cooling modifications I've made. I think my next PC will sacrifice looks and some performance for noise supression.

Well, tinboy

Well, tinboy.com is up and running. Now the real question is what to do with it. Sadly, I think I'm starting to realize that having a server at home isn't really all that necessary. The content I put on adamandjamie.com should be more than enough (even if I do put out some home movies). I almost never have people come over to my house to play games (about once a month or so). Rarely do Jamie and I want to use the computer at the same time.

I think I'm slowly realizing that at the moment, we only need one computer at home. What that means, I'm not sure. There are plenty of people who would like to snap up the second computer. Still, I might find some use for it. I'll probably need to think some more and talk to Jamie a bit.

I'm slowly transforming my second home computer into an Internet server. I installed all the server software and I registered a new domain name: tinboy.com. Now, it doesn't really go anywhere at the moment, but it has a kickin' logo. I'm not really sure what I'm going to do with it yet, either. Perhaps streaming some home videos and hosting game servers. I guess it doesn't really matter if you've got a kickin' logo.
