My lowly single PPro 200Mhz server has been faithfully and dutifully
handling my email and dishing out web pages for at least 5 years now.
It's survived several slashdottings and has been one of the more reliable
systems I've ever owned. I'm getting ready to switch over to a new server
(dual PII Xeon 450) which should make things run a lot faster but I'm
planning to keep this one around in some role.
