Greetings, O Learned Ones
from:  Sam Haynes, Pathfinders 2008

I haven't the foggiest as to how you came to be in my favorites list, 
other than that I probably tagged you in an ongoing search for both or 
either something to replace Win XP  and or build my own personal server.

I have been usining XP for several years now.  Recently, I tried to 
install XP from my OEM cd and was notified by Gates and Company that XP 
would no longer be supported. Bummer! So what else is new?  Time to part 
company with Bill? Vista was tha final straw.

I need something that will replace XP in all the essentials but without 
a useless bag full of coverups for poor performance..

Debian was the first encouraging encounter. It was recommended as a 
cheap entry into the personal server concept, using a two to three year 
old PC chassis. Sounded good but I could never figure out just how to 
download it.

So, FreeBSD appears in my fave list and server appears in the same 
paragraph as operating system.  Here is my plan.

I am 76, a retired Master Electrician, PC builder since '87, have a wife 
of 40 plus years, debilitating medical problems and a strong belief that 
I can milk a living out of internet affiliate marketing despite the 
current economic crisis.

My current model is to generate a basic website, use my existing isp to 
promote two consistent converting products, bootstrap the proceeds from 
that into building my own dedicated server to market 'how-to' products 
over a hundred or more websites.

All using ready to serve apps and a WYSIWYG HTML  generator.

I appreciate your time reading this over long monologue... I'd 
appreciate it even more if you could take some time to throw some 
suggestions back at me..
