    I know Chris Pirillo does this, but he didn't reply to my email. :p

    Basically I'm thinking about doing what he does - lifestreaming, so for the computer to do that I'm thinking about a Mac Mini, twinned with a few apps, such as CamTwist, etc, I'll lifestream! So do you guys think it's that much strain to use it on my Mac Pro, or just get the cheap-o mac mini?

    As you know, your Mac Pro is more powerful than a Mini. However, if you don't keep your Pro on (or don't want to keep it on) all the time, than you might want to look into a Mini to do the work for you.
