That sounds like a possible solution.  Unfortunately I don't have a
dedicated Linux box.  I have a dual boot system that is pretty much
100% in Windows because it must serve the needs of the rest of the
family as well.  I get my fix of Linux at the office as I have one of
my machines that is Linux only (or via my dual boot work laptop at
home).  When I get a new home PC the current one will become my
personal Linux box  Until then I can't implement a Linux based
solution to my problem.
