    Do I get the impression you don't like the Green party?

    To be honest, I don't care much for them myself anymore.

    I went out in the sunshine yesterday and it was quite nice. I wouldn't have...

    I've never used a VPN.

    The closest thing I do is use Andrews & Arnold's L2TP service, which works kind-of like a VPN, but is unencrypted, so does not give you any added privacy. I use this to...

    Sounds good. We don't have fibre here yet, but it should be coming in the next couple of years.

    I'm not sure how it would work. Would your machine do a 'netboot' (like PXE)? Or would it run some other OS like Linux and have the Windows run in a VM or similar?

    Yes, I just duplicate the drive onto another drive every so often. So any backups may not be 'up to date', but if there were to be a catastrophic failure, it will only be recent stuff that gets lost.

    I haven't considered that. I think it would be a bit overkill for my needs. I'd rather just have a decent sized HDD/SSD in my main PC. Said PC is accessible over the network anyway.
