Build Your Own Server
How many computers do you have in your house? With 2 or more PCs, it's very convenient to network them, and after spending money on 2 PCs, you probably don't' have much left for a huge network, let alone a server.


First things first, you'll need to get some components. SCSI is pronounced “skuzzy” and stands for Small Computer System Interface. It is a way of interfacing the disk drives and the motherboard together. You can scotch tape these along with a secured router on the underside of a cardboard box. Have your Mommy or Daddy help you cut holes in the box for ventilation for like many CPU's, overheating will affect performance.


Lastly, go ahead and splurge .53 cents for a pack of Grandma's Old Fashioned Oatmeal Cream Cookies. They aren't a component for your new homemade server, but it is my understanding that snack food products and desktop candy jars make the IT guy very happy.

    Cute kid.

    We have two personal computers and one server with over a terrabyte (1000GB) of storage, we also second the tower as a Home Media Centre and watch TV on the big screen in the lounge room.

    I do wish everyone had a set-up much like this since I have season upon season of TV shows that I could share with people. Instead I have to ask if their DVD is DivX enabled.
