  1. How would you recommend someone like me getting a remote server.? I really like the idea of being able to access my music while I’m at work. There have been so many times where I wanted to play something for my students but then I realize that it’s at home.

  2. You don’t really need a remote server to access music from work.

    An old computer with linux installed can be a great “home server” that will let you do most things you probably want to do.

    Specifically for music, Jinzora really is quite cool.

    Oh, and a DNS service like DYNDNS can help too, so that you don’t have to remember your IP.

  3. Wow! What a great list of things I don’t understand! This list could be the seed of a much longer list of “things about the internet that I should some day look in to but probably won’t.”

    Despite my ignorance, I thought of some possible uses for a remote server that didn’t make the list (all these are assuming that a remote server is a metal box-type object with blinky lights)

    1) Religious fetish object for techno-cult

    2) Kind of bulky chest piece for robot costume

    3) Thing to hide behind when being hunted by person with X-ray vision

    4) Bait for dust-bunny trap

    5) Thing with which to hold up the security line at the airport
