I have a high quality server which I'm not currently using for anything. What should I host on it?

This will sound cliche, but game servers are always appreciated. Especially if it's something that's multiplatform.

There is a handful of software you can run that is media storage accessible through the internet. Like an old-school youtube, or images. Etc.

You could use it as a VPN or a Tor relay. This mosty ideal if you are the type that want to be a part of the revolution, and wake up screaming DAMN THE MAN!

Turn it into a social media site for you and your close friends. Oxwall for full featured, Pump.io for a twitter like experience, or Libertree for a blend of the two. Personally I prefer Libertree, but the others are more polished. Oh, and don't forget Diaspora.

Learn to program with it. Servers are great since as soon as you publish your work you can have it available to everyone.

Use it as a seed box. You can setup a seed box to download and seed the latest uploads from users you follow, scenes you like, or everything. You can also set them to keep your ratio above a certain number, this way you don't lose your access. This is great if you watch weekly television and don't want to pay for Netflix or Hulu. This is also a good solution if you are the type that cares about your internet points (ratio in this case).

Agree hosting a game server (or more than one) could be cool.

I've heard great things about EMT. It's free, and all it does is kill code that doesn't behave. It doesn't make any differentiation between good and bad, only functioning and malfunctioning. Honestly it seems like a really good and neat tool.

Malwarebytes has a free version, but it doesn't offer updates or live protection. Honestly it's best to just run redownload and run the free version about once a week. It's free and works pretty well.

We've all heard about cyberpunk and cypherpunk, but here's something new:
Textpunk

Newspaper articles, BBS (like this one), IRC, ASCII art, program source code, books, viewing HTML source, math, etc.

A textpunk doesn't sit there waiting for information to be slowly fed to him, textpunk is thirsty for knowledge and 100% focused - they read old school hacker textfiles.

Look at how text has shaped humanity: The birth of writing systems was correlated with some of fastest advances of science and technology in early human history. Mass production of the Bible took power away from a few select monks and democratized paving the way for people to start thinking for themselves.

Programming is text and it's the closest thing there is in the world to true wizardy and spell casting.

Today textpunks build up digital libraries of books and stick it to the copyright cartel. Aaron Swartz and so many anonymous sources that tirelessly scan and collect books.

Textpunks are the people in tune with modern digital society of ultrafast cost-free transmission of text, they're the ones rethinking, revolutionizing, publishing and mixing it with open rights and making works available online.

nothing, since the internet will be commercialized to the point where you will only be able to access that which they let you access.

We will be accustomed to discovering the truth online, and then they will mold that truth by editing the content before it is served to you. Since we have depended on the internet for truth, anything from it will be taken at face value, and the lies will be able to spread more intensely, with less resistance.

See: Google News or Yahoo News.

All of our creativity, our manifestos, and our research will be abolished, filtered to strictly the content, and then if it passes the test for usability, it will be presented with a narrative to push the agenda. Your work will be compressed to nothing but another tool for the propaganda.

Welcome to the future, welcome to now.

If I understand what you're asking, yes. The way you install crouton is through the command line, but it's a bit rigorous to get into the cli because it's ChromeOS.

It's hard to get to a terminal in ChromeOS, really? Doesn't ctrl-alt-backspace work or ctrl-alt-F1 maybe? No terminal in the applications menu? Is ChromeOS really that useless? I can't really tell, I don't have extensive experience with it.

I just bought these, they have shipped but I do not have them yet.

The reviews for them are really good, so hopefully it was a good decision. The removable cable is great for me, because I tend to run over the wires with my computer chair.

>because I tend to run over the wires with my computer chair.
Just run all the cables around and behind your speakers and monitor. Leave some extra length dangling or curved (if laying on a surface) in some place between the case and peripherals themselves, so that if you accidentally pull on them you won't yank them out of their sockets or something.

I don't have computer speakers, so my headphone are plugged into my tower. None of my gaming headphones were long enough to do as you suggest. These ones come with a 10 foot cord, so I will definitely be routing it behind my desk and over the top.
