    Re: does any one else run a network at home with servers?

    LOL. Yeah, I chose my room based on the fact that it would be where the cable for broadband came in and i wanted to be able to see the router from my desk seeing as I'll be the one who owns all the network equipment and will be funding /that/ little project.

    It's more an exercise of fun for me than getting internet for the others

    /me hopes he has enough Cat5e left in the box to do the house.

    Sounds like a fun project - you could always get the other to chip in for another box of cable

    Could do, words such as blood and stone are coming to mind

    Yes, you're right... pot noodles are far more important

    Pot noodles! That's far too expensive. Asda's 8p noodles are nicer anyway

    I'll need a job next year though, so anyone in Stafford looking for a part timer that's doing Network Engineering (currently doing CCNA 1 aswell) let me know


    (worth a try eh!)

    That's more what it was in this house, seeing as I'm the one who pays for telewest, I didn't have to share it with the others!

    Looked at the router statistics the other day, in a little over a month, we've downloaded over 60gbs worth of stuff 8O think we better calm down a bit!!

    I'm only on 2mb telewest, and I've noticed a destint lack of performance from it recently as well. (and that's when nobody's downloading anything)

    Telewest are unmetered so it wouldnt matter if you've downloaded 60GBs of stuff....enjoy it...that's what the internet's there for

    We're going to be sharing the cost of the broadband line...in stafford it's got to be NTL for cable apparently. But it's all owned by Virgin now anyway lol

    I dunno what is causing it... maybe it is the merger or whatever happened with virgin?

    I am a member of www.by-users.co.uk (i.e. blueyonder users) and there have been a number of complains there about speed recently. No-one appears to be aware of what the problem is and support teams from blueyonder/virgin will always deny it is them.

    I thought it was my brothers bittorrent at first, but nope.

    Re: does any one else run a network at home with servers?

    Our Telewest has been getting a bit rubbish too recently and the on demand TV is very slow and rarely works now that Virgin have taken over. Not sure why, all they've changed it the colour scheme!

    I've just got an invite for that. Jolly interesting it is too. I'll put up some of my thoughts on it so far if you like.

    Looks like MS is getting worried about open source offerings of home server stuff. Will be interesting to see if WHS supports *nix, or whether it will just be a 'network hard disk' that runs Windows (and in turn automatically uses up 50% of system resources when idle).

    Re: does any one else run a network at home with servers?

    My parents home has a linux server (web, file server) and a win2k3 RRAS box with a Dynamic DNS client running.
    Am planning to migrate them down here at some point as its in severe need of updating but being over 300 miles away is a bit of aproblem at times when updates can't get done remotely or access is lost
