So here is my FreeBSD media center.

Asus A8N, Athlon X2 4800+, Geforce 7200

I just login with ssh, start tmux, xinit, start a new shell, setenv DISPLAY, and use mplayer.

Who needs xbmc?

Total costs: €0.

At least he's prepared for the end of the world, just knock his media centre off it's foundation and run like hell.

You should always know where your towel is, but keep backup towels around just in case.

LOL! I couldn't hear my stereo over the noise from my FreeBSD server

I'm still not sure what I will use it for, I just installed 8.2 and I will track stable. I have been away from BSD for a few years but came back since I have Sparc boxes now. Amazingly, NetBSD doesn't run on my servers but OpenBSD and FreeBSD do so I installed them both. Now, where did I put my earplugs?

Here's my new router/file/web/ftp server/firewall/SIP gateway (codename "MAINFRAME")
FOXCONN low-power mainboard (about $50)
AMD E-240 CPU 1500MHz (built in)
AMD VISION chipset
2 Fujitsu 250GB SATA-150 notebook drives (Software RAID I) <These are about 7 years old and still working great
1GB Hynix DDR3-1066 RAM (I only buy Hynix RAM nowadays because it's been pretty reliable for me)
2 Realtek gigabit LAN cards

I stuffed it all into this nice aluminum case that was a Newbridge Networks v.35 bridge router circa 1993
