You dudes need to get with the times and put all this stuff in the cloud.
Ok so I joke a little..

The "cloud" seems to be a more modern implementation of the mainframe "paradigm" (and now I feel soiled having used 2 such words in one sentence). It has its uses, though it's interesting to see how things go full circle. I predict a move away from "the cloud" in about a decade, give or take.

The only thing I keep at home now is storage.

I do have a few virtual private servers (and use them) and have set up a few VPS serving servers myself. However it's fun to tinker with hardware and if I'd migrate as much as possible to VPS systems it'd take a big chunk of the fun out of it.

As a side note, the main reasons for me to have a more energy efficient setup is not to "go green" (there are better ways for that) but because it is a fun challenge, I dislike paying bigger bills, and I hate the clutter and the noise a big setup brings.
