Humor It has been making waves on the net for a few days already, and I don't want to keep anyone deprived from this utter piece of brilliance. "Mommy, why is there a server in the house?", a children's book made by Microsoft to 'help your child understand the stay-at-home server'. "Big people have a server at the 'office'. The office is a big place where people go and do boring things." Not everybody will appreciate the twisted humour, but I sure do. Utterly brilliant, this. Update: There is more!

Needless to mention that you don't need the server to be at home, and it doesn't have to be Windows. A regular oversold Linux web hosting account at $7/m will do the trick.

Well, that really depends on what you're planning to do with your server. Sharing streamed media just isn't that easy with a web server. Not that you need a super expensive Windows server for the task, though...

Why? Just create the following directories: Videos, Music, Images in your remote home directory and mount them locally as a local folders on the computers of your house.

I have done something similar to work at the office and at home at night. You can have remote directories on both Linux and Windows workstations.
