in reply to OT: Building a small home server

If you don't have $300+, I encourage everyone to slap an extra computer together from spare parts like I did.

    "Firebird" (used as a file server/sometimes workstation by a poor college student)
  • 400 MHz AMD K6-2
  • 450MB RAM
  • Hard Drives
    • 1 1.2 GB (Windows 2000 system)
    • 2 20 GB (Data)
    • 1 40 GB (MP3s and Movies)
  • Has Perl. Haven't installed Apache yet, but I plan on it.

Surprisingly, it works well. It's slow, but it's reliable. (although most of you would rather use Linux or FreeBSD, I'm sure)

[Lady_Aleena]: I don't want to have to do: alpha_menu($hash, undef, $type);
[Lady_Aleena]: Or what Discipulus said.
[shmem]: Lady_Aleena: geany supports ctags.
[Discipulus]: a good compromise can be my ($need, $opts_ref) = @_ a scalar and an hash reference
[Discipulus]: see you monks!
[Lady_Aleena]: shmem, let me get this sub rewritten, then I will look into how to use ctags in geany. Deal? 8)
[shmem]: Discipulus: yeah, that might eventually prepare the path for OO ;-)
[Lady_Aleena]: See you, Discipulus.
[shmem]: Lady_Aleena: that's up to you. I only wanted to show you a path that might be more comforting than command line grep ;-)
[Lady_Aleena]: shmem, I don't think any of my modules could be converted to OO. They are too procedural.
