Thanks Gary.  I've been thinking about the virtual host idea and have
some extra IP's so that might be fun. Traditionally when  I renovate
one may personal servers, I have them running at 5-20% capacity and
within a year, I usually have figured out ways to put most all to use.
 The price difference between a minimal design and something like this
usually not significant.  So this is sounding more and more like a go.

Have a great day,
