comment How the heck is http://to./ a valid domain name?

comment What OS would you use for a simple fileserver and why?
@Chris Thorpe: Why is RAIDZ not suitable for 200Gb of data? He could use three 160Gb drives in RAIDZ to provide 320Gb of storage with some protection against disk failures.

comment Colocation near EC2
I don't think that you can know which data center your instance is in, even if you knew which data centers hosted EC2. Even if you did, once you get a new instance it could move to a different data center.

comment Server software ideas for G5
The G5 came with Mac OS X and you can use that as a base to install whatever you want to make it a server. You can also use Darwin, which is the Unix part of Mac OS X and has ISOs available for the 10.4 version.

comment Is bit rot on hard drives a real problem? What can be done about it?
RAID can't tell which data is good and which isn't so it can't fix errors, it can just detect them.
