Hi all,

I haven't used my infamous Toshiba Satellite with FreeBSD 4.8 very much
since I got my desktop system with a flatscreen.  I'm trying to think of
something interesting to do with it now.  I don't really need a separate
firewall, and it doesn't make sense to use it as a fileserver.  With a ppp
connection, it couldn't easily be a webserver either.

Any ideas on something interesting to use it for?  Maybe some kind of
learning experience?

My other computer is your windows box.
