Just thought I'd take the opportunity to comment about KDE3... as
pretty as it is, it's still a little bloated :)
A nice features of newer systems is WOL - if you can get it working.
In theory, you'd be able to make the gateway box turn on on demand,
then shut it down after use - without touching the hardware yourself
:). That way you don't waste power, and never have to worry about DOS
attacks in your absence costing you money due to Telstra's "Unlimited
Credit/Overcommittment" policy. But I digress.
