I have always wanted to have an RFID tag, say in a watch or ring, with the reader near my door knob running to a RaspberryPi or Arduino hooked up to a servo controlling the deadbolt; my door would only unlock when I grab the door knob and immediately locks again when the door closes.

My desktop isn't booting up, so I'm right now setting up the pi to use that monitor, keyboard, etc. There is an issue with that, though, that correlates with an issue I had before. A few months ago, I set up the Pi as a samba server and torrent box. It functioned properly.. for a while. I had the wifi dongle and usb storage connected, and after a time of seeding, the pi would halt. I assume it was the usb power draw, so I bought a powered hub... which doesn't work. Currently I am updating the system; perhaps that issue has been resolved since last December.
I hope to use it for SSH, irc, samba, and other servers. Ideally, I would like it to work as a NAS, but with communication also. All of it would be internal to my network only. I would like to have it also run an IRC bot that I could have do things while I am at school from my laptop. I need to learn how to code that though.
