From time to time I work with hardware so my workshop is equipped with oscilloscope, multimeter, signal generator, soldering station, and recently also infra-red IC heater.
And because first of all I am a software engineer I also have a computer in my workshop. It is mainly used for software and hardware design. That is why it is a small server with not much graphics but with 8 cores CPU and SSD (I don’t have much spare time).
The thing I like the most is that I setup router at my home to forward some ports to the server and thanks to dynamic DNS I have access to the machine from all over the world, even with my mobile phone.
And thanks to WAL (wake on lan) I can remotely switch on the machine.
