    sexiest server on the planet

    Hi guys,

    I like to present to you: the sexiest server on the planet.
    Specs: ASUS8400 L series. Processor:850mhz P3. RAM:192MB. Graphics adapter: savage with 64MB shared memory.
    OK I know, these specs suck. It's just a stupid old laptop. So what's sexy about it?

    Well...
    it runs Edgy (6.10) server as a LAMP, and boots in 30 seconds. It also has ftp configured. This laptop will be my personal web server.

    OK, so it runs a server.
    AND a desktop environement. Fluxbox on xde. Hey, I'm new at this stuff so the first time around setting a server from terminal only is pretty tough. I also installed the most important Automatix2 multimedia packages. Nothing beats a good bit of rock&roll while administrating a server.

    OK, so you installed a LAMP server, and set it to boot to a leightweight DE. So what's sexy about it?

    ...
    It has a Jenna James background.


    I had this conversation yesterday with a pretty close friend. I saw it in action and it works like a charm. Just curious about comments from the Ubuntu-community (altho I expect little approval )

    Hope its goes well..

    Currently putting together a Ubuntu server from an old HP P3 Prolient server.
    The intention is to use it as a web/ssh server to store support files for remote engineers within the company i work for.

    First time I've used Ubuntu as an actual server, should be an interesting learning experience.
    Dunno if my boss would be too keen with a Jenna James wallpeper though

    I think this is possibly the only time I have seen the words sexy and server in the same sentence.

    yeah, he likes to mix pleasure with work.
    I was expecting replies like 'lol n00b don't use a DE on a server' etc, but you guys are great.

    The server's current IP is ***.***.***.*** but I think I need to set up port forwarding on the router first. Websites and a domain name are to follow 'soon'. - l00n@tic -
