Fun uses for your xbox

Post by zlasher » Sat Jul 15, 2006 1:46 pm

Ok - most of us has an xbox running linux - but what do we use it for??

Here is my list :

:: OpenDP500 (daemon)
Media source for my DP558 mediaplayer
:: Slimserver (perl daemon)
Media source for my Squeezebox
:: WWW
For various home projects
:: FTP
For various use (mostly used as a "drop off" for files when I'm on the run)
:: OSI server
For personal use on blogs and forums

I would also like to run a ventrilo server - but my ISP doesn't really allow me to run any (!) servers - But they can't keep all ports blocked - so I'm still trying to get that to work.. :-)

Anyone else has something interesting running on their boxes?

The whole reason I wanted to get GentooX on my box was to run a proxy script, so I could surf wherever I wanted from work.
Now they cant block any websites, I got the jmarshall CGI Proxy running on my box.

script -> ... -beta.html

I used to use it as a firewall/NAT box that ran my web/ftp/samba/etc, but it's a bit underpowered and I wanted to get mythtv going so I got a new server and now I run both xboxes as mythtv/xbmc frontends.
