laurence is my secondary PC. It acts as a file server (which is why romeo doesn't have much disk space) and performs other centralized tasks like backups. I converted all my CDs to Ogg Vorbis files on laurence so I can listen to music from any PC in the house or from a laptop in the back yard (via my wireless network). With my pre-amplified turntable, I'll be converting all my vinyl albums to Ogg Vorbis next.
