Thrown together a nice little spare machine (with bigger plans :) It's a K6-III (the cache everywhere thing). Now I just have to decide which hard disk I "spare" for it, and tomorrow I'll be getting a 100mb switch too to test my improved home network. Geeky. Gigabit would be better, have I mentioned it? :)

I've read a lot through ethernet docs these days, gigabit is very funny, it's full duplex on 4 wire pairs using all of them simultaneously in both directions. I'm not an EE, so it's magic to me :). You can't anymore confuse me with AUI, MAC, MII, GMII, PHY, PMD, PCS, MDI-X, MDI-II, ethernet flow control, link aggregation, vlan, NWay, LIT, NLP, FLP and such trivial things :)
