My tmsw.dyndns.org S1 server (FreeBSD 8, Garmin 18LVC on the roof) is a 
very old Dell Latitude laptop sitting in my (cold) attic.

The hard drive doesn't need to run very often at all, except for 
flushing updates to the stats files, and the ntp server part has behaved 
quite nicely, including riding out any brownouts we might have had.
