My dad has installed an external modem that is running off our switch (via serial cable) to connect us to the internet. This is good since we won't have to switch back and forth all the time from having the "big" computer being connected and my laptop. It sort of gets confusing when trying to have 3 (or 4) computers being able to connect to the internet through two possible gateways, and being able to switch back and forth all the time. The only thing that I don't like about this connection is that it seems always slow. Ah well. It's not like I am doing any big downloading anyways.
I'll now be able to use Apache on my linux box to actually serve web pages, but with it maxing out a 3 kb/s, there really isn't much point till I move out and get a high speed connection. My dad is trying to get me to help pay for a satellite connection, but I don't think that it will be worth the cost. We'll see though. Maybe it'll be cheaper than I think, but I doubt it.
