I tended to use one machine for one set of power intensive tasks while using the other to stream from and then some minor tasks.

I use samba sharing in my house since my server is Linux. It also has ftps for file transfer if I need it. I also stream with plex media server.

Anyone here use vsFTPd? It's a nice little service for FTP on Linux. The only problem with that is FTP is nowhere near secure. :P

Other than that, Apache, PHP, and MySQL, I don't really run very many services. I do have quite the list of Virtual Hosts, though. ;)

I've considered running a personal home server so I can access files if I'm away, but I got a 3TB external drive, so I haven't need for a home server anymore.

I use that but it runs the ftps protocol. I couldn't be bothered to set it up for SFTP though.

Zach, what kind of channels are hosted on your server? What communities have partnered with your IRC? :)

There aren't any communities on my server, really. Essentially my IRC server is probably one of the smallest ones on the internet. I formed it when a bunch of friends of mine from another community wanted to keep in touch with each other through means of IRC (while we were still a part of the community and they had an IRC channel), so we kept on that same channel despite our mutual departure from said community. It just happened to be that we disliked the tight restrictions on certain words that I went ahead and took my time to set up an IRC server, and it's been around for nearly 2½ years now.

As I don't pay for the electricity here, I don't run any servers. If I paid the electricity bill, I could run as many as I want as long as the bill was paid. A downside of having a father in IT is that he knows how much it costs to run a dedicated server 24/7 with regards to electricity.

I want to set up a minecraft server someday, administered by myself, so I can be responsible if something happens to it.

Woooooo responsibility!

Lately it has been dead because of me being in school and others just being busy.

If y'all want, I can send you guys the server information. I won't post it here for advertising reasons though xD

And I'm sure maintaining a Minecraft server can be comparable to maintaining an IRC server, but I'm not sure really haha

Sure, why not? PM me. I'd like to hop into a new IRC server from time to time. Do you do SSL?

I don't reall use IRC chat much.

Also, my search for a new mouse has ended. Just got this in the mail and it ius working very well. Fits in the hand very nicely and the programmable buttons are easy to use and are intuitive.

I'd use IRC, but... I just don't really like how outdated its interface is. Most people don't really care about that, but me, though, I do. :P

Good thing you have a lot of clients to choose from, of both web-based and full-fat variety. Pick one that works for you the most.

As old as IRC is, I wouldn't really call it outdated. Just look at places like EFNet and Freenode that are still running to this day with lots of activity. Sure, the activity isn't anywhere near as high as it once was, but it's still up there for sure.

Chatzilla is a wonderful client and I recommend you all to use that one! mIRC is okay, but it's gonna annoy the hell out of you with its 30 DAY TRIAL HAS ENDED - PAY US NAO.

I use IceChat myself. It's really nice, and it's easy to use once you get used to it. It is a tad confusing at first, though, then again, so is IRC in general when you're first using it.
