Hardware geeking ahead  
So, I want to co-locate my server officially. I can park a 1U locally with 1Mbit up and down, unlimited usage of that megabit, UPS, free reboots, 24/7 access, for $55 a month.

I want to up the reliability further by getting an ITX motherboard & 1U case designed for it, and do a mirrored drive. I've been impressed with my ITX suitcase's low power consumption and low heat (and low noise, but that isn't such a big deal for a co-lo).

I can buy a Travla C146 1U case locally. Stats: http://206.14.132.88/products/Travla/c146/C146.html

Does this seem reasonable? Any geeks want to give me input before I start buying parts? Thanks.

I figure running cooler would probably make it less likely to melt down.
Beh, just put in a fan with a high airflow. Who cares that it's noisy? :)

I currently use a 900MHz AMD Duron with 512 megs of ram, and I seldom come close to maxing out CPU or memory on it.
Well, the Mini-ITX boards are actually pretty cheap, if you consider that you get a highly-integrated motherboard plus processor.
Still, a cheap Asrock mobo plus cheap Sempron will probably be just a bit cheaper.
