    Yay, eek, that was still expensive but anyways! it be here in 3-5 days.

    I do have a macbook pro but do not have an extra plug in keyboard, but I prob could barrow the mouse from the macbook pro(and just use the trackpad). But I am wondering...prob stupid as in YES DUH YOU DO! That I will need a keyboard to setup stuff first correct? Only monitor I have is my TV! This is gonna be fun.

    But soon as I get a few things configured I can just use VPN/SSH to manage the server without a keyboard/mouse and monitor from my macbook pro? If so I might just hang out at an apple store to get it configured at first. Or just break down with 40 bucks or 60 for a wireless keyboard... prob need it down the line.

    A USB keyboard mouse can be had for $15 on up. Heck, your friends probably have some in a closet someplace.
