I'm thinking about building a server too and one of the things I wanted it for 
was a caching apt proxy. There seem to be a few ways of doing this though, 
which is the best of the lot?

Some of the other things I wanted to put on my server were:
LAMP for website testing
A torrent downloader - something like deluge or torrentflux
Squeezecenter - I have 2 squeezeboxes
