Very cool, but...Kind of annoying? Having your computer on 24/7.

the computers here are on 24/7. What I find annoying is rebooting and stuff. :-?

Crikey! You have your servers running IN YOUR HOUSE?

Heh, what's your record for longest uptime?

I guy I know has had his laptop on for 63 days once :o

And it wasn't a server or anything...

My sister and her boyfriend keep their's on all week, shutting it down only on friday night, turning it back on on Saturday evening.

My comps are usually on 24/7. Emule, y'know, plus excesive usage on work/studies/whatever. If I had a fixed IP, I'd have a server.

If you have win98, this is probably a bad idea, though. And in any case, it's a good idea to reboot now and then.

One more thing - if you're not in the house, turn your monitor off. That thing runs up your electric like you wouldnt belive.

Not LCD moniters. Big Grin

Nah, I have Windows 2000, and things have seemed to have been running perfectly fine. I ask people how fast pages will load from my PC, and they'd tell me it was just fine. I was warned about speed before, but that seems to not be an issue.
