That is a good thing! :) OwnCloud is actually really nice. In addition
to sharing files, it can do calendars, contact management, and there
are a ton of other apps for it. Not to mention that since it is open
source it works really well with Linux clients. Good stuff.

I haven't yet put it on the VPS, but I intend to, so I can access it
when I'm not at home. From what I know, they have a fairly good
security record throughout the time I've been aware of it, and it's a
big-name project, so there are lots of eyes on the code.

Well, the main server I have at home would also best be described as a
(maybe mutant) franken-server, and it works just fine. OwnCloud doesn't
require much in terms of hardware, although extra disk space for all
that you want to store there is nice.

Buy an extra disk and start playing :)
