I think that a MediaGoblin server would be nice, so if we wanted to we
could use the old server for art/media. As far as privacy - we do still
have two mirrors running TOR that not many people seem to utilize.

This server could definitely host e-mail as well, which would be nice
since the hosting is more secure than all of our current providers.

Perhaps lukeshu or fauno could give us some insight on how long the cost
migration would take. There is a lot of script magic running on our
server that may need to be setup again.
