So what's in NANOGers home networks/compute centers? :)
Surprisingly minimalistic - a Linksys cablemodem and a Belkin Play wireless
router, both from Best Buy, a Dell Latitude laptop from work, and a PS/3.
(I used to have more gear, but it came down to floor space for compute gear I
didn't use versus guitar gear I *do* use.. ;)
I'm on a similar page with Valdis, cable modem and a couple wireless routers (11n with USB drive for media, b/g
downstairs for kids Xbox). The serious toys are at the office :) And no guitar gear, but keyboards and home theater gear
have priority. Used to run a Nepenthes honeypot but have retired it as very little malware is network-driven these days and
the returns were minimal.
Also have a small museum in the back room, with an IBM 2311 disk drive carcass (glass door intact), a 360/65 front
panel, and an HP9000 D-class (still boots when I can afford the power/noise/nostalgia).
