This may become an interesting summer project

Listening to In The Trenches while having lunch at my desk, I find myself intrigued greatly by Rob Whaley’s Admin to Admin segment on Uniform Server. I’ve been seriously thinking about trying to setup a web-server and seeing if I could get some sort of intranet put together as a place to post announcements or just communicate better with my users and the one complication I kept running into is that our one “server” machine is overloaded as it is, so running IIS just seemed like it might be a waste. If I can run this platform on a desktop OS, (especially if I can use one of our older, out of service, machines) it gives me a great opportunity to play around with Apache, MySQL, PHP and build something useful for the office too! I’ll definitely be checking this out…
