HP MediaSmart Server EX487 and a VPN Connection

I'm thinking about adding the HP MediaSmart Server EX487 to my home network. I have multiple computers in my apartment (all Windows PCs), including a work machine that is always connected via VPN to my office (to acccess Outlook, a shared drive, etc.). Will the work machine's VPN connection cause any difficulties, or prevent me from utilizing the HP for file sharing, printing, back up, etc. for my work machine, or any of my home machines?

Where are companies building power-hungry datacenters to take advantage of cheap power?

Is there a list of datacenter projects that have been built from a green-field state to take advantage of a guaranteed low per kilowatt-hour electrical rate? In particular I'm thinking of the big Google facility near The Dalles, Oregon and the Microsoft datacenter in a small eastern Washington town. Both were built in areas with excess capacity originally intended to serve large Aluminum smelters. [more inside]

Why does Ubuntu/linux make it so freaking difficult to do the equivalent of the Windows command "Map Network Drive"?

For the purposes of using Amarok on my laptop, which can not be told that my music folder is located in a shared folder on my media center (as far as I can see), I need to permanently mount the shared music network folder in Ubuntu.

MacBook wireless networking problems in the Czech Republic

I have been living in a small university town outside Prague in the Czech Republic since the summer. I am using my 2006 Apple MacBook MA254LL/A (running 10.5.5) to connect to the internet. However, I have experienced a lot of problems connecting to free wireless internet hotspots. My laptop takes a while to locate the network by scanning, and then either asks for a password or tells me the network is unavailable. I know that my Airport works fine elsewhere, and that the connection usually happens automatically. I will ask one of the workers at the store if there is a password, and the answer is always no. Moreover, I see PC users connecting to the internet without a problem. Does anyone know what the issue is with wireless networking on a Mac in the Czech Republic? [I would post this question to the Apple support forums, but it appears that their new accounts system is down]
