I think most of us have various setups at home for learning/experimenting, partly because its fun, partly because its a good way to get a better job and partly because our employer doesn't give us proper development environments!

Its been a long time since I've worked at a place that has a proper dev->staging->production setup.

I'm glad the op didn't use the term "lab" which always seems to be clueless people trying to get a CCNA, rather than people actually interested in their trade.

if its within wifi range should his house burns down, so will his backup box, and multi-terrabyte backup over wifi won't be fun.

realistically an esata enclosure stored a bit further away than a neighbour is the best way to go (maybe at work?) kept up to date with rsync (locally not over t'internet).

this question has been asked countless times before. search box is top left.

Comment: SFO hostility (Score 2) 510

I've got to say SFO is consistently the most hostile airport I've ever been to, and I've been to a lot of them.

But this just beggars belief and basically boils down to taxi drivers wanting a monopoly and "somehow" convincing the airport officials to back them.

You can't do anything for free in the good old US-of-A, its bound to upset some corporation or other, and they're the ones with all the power, not the voters.
