or you can NOT! Why do that? For one thing not everyone has 2 comps, and I do but my other one is very crappy so I am not sure I should bother loading anything on it. Plus most online wargame servers are also very easy, and also some of them are well setup, providing some really useful info. Sure you can put it on your own comp, but why? Use someone elses, it is easier, cleaner and prolly even fast, if you have dial-up, which most people do.

Ok here are some pros and cons I came up with, feel free to add your own
Your own Wargameserver mini-server
-You know for sure that youíre not being logged in some FBI hacker database
-You chose the OS and all the settings
-Make the OS more and more secure at your own pace
-You set it up so you already have a good idea of how to hack into it
-Might not have the software that you need
-Have to set everything up
Some one elseís Wargame server
-There intended to teach you stuff you don't know
-They scale in difficulty
-You can talk to other people that have hacked the server if you get stumped
-You don't have to set anything up
-Thereís a certain amount of trust involved
-If thereís something specific you want to try and learn you might be hard pressed to find box with those conditions
Its not software piracy. Iím just making multiple off site backups.
