More "Switching" going on. After several unsuccessful attempts at an elegant solution to sharing a printer across a network with Windows, Linux and OS X clients, we turned my B&W G3 into the generic shared box. It now shares the printer as well as files via FTP, Samba or HTTP, and will soon enough be a mail server. Could also technically be used as a guest computer for when people need to check their email or something from the dining area.
There's still hope for Linux yet as I could install MythTV o nmy other computer and have a tivo like setup... finally.
