As per Catwho's request, I wrote a guide purchasing, configuring, and running a Murmur/Mumble server on a Raspberry Pi.

I still want one of these. Got a few ideas for its use.

Awesomesauce!

I know where next month's IT budget is going.

Once I'm done with the initial setup, can I just leave the Pi as headless on the network and connect via SSH all the time? Funny enough, I have a spare crappy 10 year old Dell monitor, but not a spare keyboard. (I suppose I could grab one from Goodwill...) More importantly, the place I'd put it where it can access the router via Ethernet (e.g. my desk) isn't conducive to having a micro PC set up on it full time,

Well, for one thing, if you need to reboot your main system, you don't kick everyone else off.

It separates the workload off your gaming PC and onto a dedicated system. It ought to improve quality of service for everyone.

Yes, that's what I do. My main (read: production) Pi runs Murmur and an IRC bot, and I maintain both via SSH using PuTTy. It's very slick.

I'm planning on ordering a second board here in the next few weeks for tinkering. Other ideas I have are:

RSS Feed Aggregator (RIP Google Reader)
Discourse Discussion boards (See Jeff Atwood at Coding Horror: http://www.codinghorror.com/blog/2013/02/civilized-discourse-construction-kit.html)
Integrated garage door opener (so I can open the door for my dad when I need him to check on my dogs or something without having to leave him a key) as well as other home automation
Other little fiddly things.

Basically I want to have a stable server my friends can rely on and a separate dev environment I can blow away and reload as needed.

I can't say, I really wasn't paying attention. I have the Wideband plan with Time Warner Cable (30 down, 5 up) with unlimited usage, so there really isn't any way to monitor bandwidth . I might look and see if my modem has that feature, but I connect all of my wired machines via an 8 port switch so I would need to plug the Pi directly into the router to track it's usage. I'll look into that tonight and report back if I have any findings to share.

LOL.

I found a utility called Darkstat that can watch specific ports on a Unix machine, so I've set it up to watch the eth0 port on the Pi and I'll let you know what it comes up with when we have our next big Mumble night.

Do you still host a server right now wint? I was thinking I could connect and test out my client if you don't mind.
