Intranet at home!  
It's been a while since I had a roommate, and now I not only have one, but also will soon be sharing internet with neighbors. So I volunteered to set up an intranet file server.

I'm going to give it a name, and I'm playing with the idea of either adding it to the hosts file of each device or setting up the server to also be a caching DNS server. Sadly my nice high-powered wifi router doesn't support DD-WRT, which would probably a nice option I could use.

I'll run the file server off my Linux desktop for now. I might move the server to a separate little box later.

So, I got dnsmasq set up. It looks like it'll do the trick.

Or FG205! Though that would be difficult to remember... might just leave it as "Minty," the name of my desktop.
