    Linux Server Distro's.. Which One??

    If you've got an hour or two, setting up an Ubuntu server image with SSH access and then setting up an SSH key or two is pretty easy. I've got an old laptop running Ubuntu for a Minecraft server pulling double-duty as an SSH server with an external hard drive attached.

    Steam Caching Tutorial

    Has anyone had any luck with setting this up without using Docker? I'm trying to set it up with nginx, and I managed to complete the setup process in the arsTechnica article but it doesn't seem to be working at all.

    I Love Tech, But How Do I Apply It?

    Thank you so much to everyone who responded! Definitely a lot great things here I'm considering. I'm definitely going to try and go back to school, and get some kind of degree, and I definitely want to look into getting certifications and building a lab now.

    I Love Tech, But How Do I Apply It?

    I guess I'm looking for some advice here. I love building systems, setting up networks, configuring servers, overclocking, managing my home LAN, and it just gives me such a rush, and I love it. However, I have no idea how to apply it and make money off of it. I'm 23 years old and currently a manager for a fast food joint (FYI, Wendy's beef actually *is* fresh and never frozen), but I want to have a job that I can play around with computers and networks, and I have no idea what exactly that is or how to go about getting there. I can set up networks and systems, I'm quite familiar with the Linux command line, I know how to set up private servers for me and my gaming clan to use together, I can configure routers and DHCP/static IP addresses and port forwarding... I know I'm kind of rambling, but I have no idea where to take my love of tech from being a hobby to being something more that I can wake up every day and be excited because I get to go to work and do something I actually enjoy.

    Ideas for Single Core Server

    I've actually got one of those, too.

    Ideas for Single Core Server

    Hey guys, My sister recently gifted me with an old laptop that she no longer uses. It's an old Compaq notebook with a single core, single thread AMD CPU and 2GB of RAM. I was originally planning on installing Ubuntu Server on it, as the battery is shot and I can leave it plugged into the wall and my Ethernet switch, but beyond that, what can I actually use it for with only one core? Any thoughts or ideas would be greatly appreciated!
