I didn't realize when I first started coming to noisebridge how many 
people receive every message that is sent to the list.  The result was 
lots of anger towards me personally for too many posts.

To answer your question:
The best solution I came up with was to setup a dedicated xen hypervisor 
server in the server room.  It would serve only relatively low traffic 
solutions for noisebridge itself, including forums, a diaspora server, 
etc.  Using xen would allow everything to have its own dedicated virtual 

The xen server could also be a machine for noisebridge 
visitors/developers to use to test their apps, but that traffic would 
only be permitted from within the noisebridge network (i.e., they are 
physically at the space).

I went so far as to offer to buy the server myself and put it in the 
server room.  The only response I got was that we didn't need another 
server in there using electricity.
