They just released FreeBSD 8.1with G5 support and with a bootloader that can boot from a ZFS file system. So make it into a power hungry ZFS file server.

I have fibre to my house connected to the 2 Gbit ring that my local government owns (i.e. I am a co-owner of this). I subscribe to a 100 mpbs service on my fibre and when I connect a laptop directly to the fibre hub I get over 85-90 mbps download speed. I am not sure why I didn't get full upload speed during these tests, but it doesn't bother me too much.
Now I am connected through a Buffalo Technology WHR-HP-G54 WIFI router, running Tomato Firmware so the actual throughput in the Buffalo is never more than about 40 mbps. But even when my s/w development team is here in the house, all 12 of them, nobody ever complains over bandwidth. (But we don't run torrrents all of us normally.)

I live in a suburb of Stockholm, Sweden. Our local government has built the local fibre infrastructure and I can subscribe to 100 mbps IP services from four different ISPs for about US$33/month.

Swimming across Lake Rathe I used to occasionally fall through the cracks between the water texture tiles. Disturbing when it happened as the perspective changed abruptly and unexpectedly. Normally you would fall for some time and then end up zoning to a safe spot close to South Karana zone line.
