It's the system on which I run my email MUA (mutt) and my IRC client.
It's also the NIS slave server for this floor (subnet).  It's also
where I put the squid proxy that all the Debian systems use for

Up until a few months ago, when our legacy Perforce server died, it
was also where I did all the development for an in-house Tcl (mostly)
application.  Having absolutely no intention of attempting to replace
Perforce with another Perforce, I simply took the existing checkout
(Perforce calls it a "client") that I already had, copied it over to
the Debian half of my dual-boot Debian/Windows system, and made a git
repository out of it.  (Compiling git for HP-UX 10.20 did not sound like
a fun thing to do, with all that https and stuff that it seems to want.)

This is the pace at which changes happen out here in the real world.
