"Here's a description of mine:
asks: "My job allows me too meet many technically inclined people. Invariably we get to talking about our home setups. I've run across some very sophisticated setups. Some people I've met have enough computing and storage resources to have themselves classified as large data centers. They run this at home, and usually just for the hell of it. How do the setups of Slashdot readers measure up?"
How many pieces of networked digital equipment do you have at home?
By the standards of some of the people I've run accross, this is not much. To my non-techie friends, this seems either extravagant, puzzling, or both."
