Update05/07/2015: Recently I switched the computers used as my office PC and the household servers, and reconfigured each. I also removed the security-dedicated computer and the server has now taken up that function as well. I had a power supply issue with my office system and reconfigured the server for its purpose, and acquired a new power supply and put the former office computer to use as the server. Sound complicated? A little. I also upgraded my “new” office PC with a half-terabyte SSD (Solid State Drive), which is a NAND technology (memory) with a SATA drive interface. If that is too technical, what it means is that my new “C”-drive is faster and has no moving parts, unlike a disk drive. The SSD also provides the benefit of a 2 million hour MTBF (Mean Time Between Failure), which approximates to more than 200 years. I cloned and/or repurposed other drives so that my office computer looks just like it did before the switch, and so does the server, but with somewhat different configurations under the hood. I had to re-install absolutely no software on either machine.
