    What to do with a Linux COLOCATION? Help!

    Okay, I currently colocated at Chicago FDC Servers, OUTSTANDING BY THE WAY! Cheap too! But that is not my area of concern, since I already have a colocation, I was wondering if people could give me ideas what to do with it. I colocated because I found them, they offered me an affordable colocation.

    I do not wish to host STEAM GAME SERVERs like counter strike.
    If I had a ventrilo license, I could host a huge ventrilo, but I do not. Teamspeak is out of the question. I need some COOL ideas! I wouldn't mind hosting something for someone either! I get bored, give me ideas! Don't bother replying unless they are awesome!

    Have you thought about hosting Mumble? It is like Ventrilo, only much better: No delay, better quality, open source.

    Apparently I can't post links yet, so search google for Mumble, it should be the first result. It is hosted at SourceForge.

    I'm not aware intel have a dual core 3.06 xeon processor, I do know years ago they had single core cpus that ran at 3.06ghz.

    Just curious, why did you purchase colocation without a set purpose in mind in the first place? There are plenty of uses out there, just usually is best to know what you plan on doing before purchasing =p

    I guess that answers why someone was able to sell you a colo...

    would you like to buy another? Cheap? Then when you get that idea worked out you could do it twice!!
