Personal website - is it worth it?

Hi, guys. I've been playing around with an idea... of a personal website to put my resume on, photos, favorite links, code samples, scanned copy of my SCJP certificate, etc. Maybe I could get some input as of what you think the usefulness of a personal website is in general.

I think its worth it. It doesn't cost very much. I like the idea of having your resume at www.firstname-lastname.com/resume.pdf .

I do keep a webserver up on my machine at home which has a permanent connection with the net but mainly for testing stuff and providing the odd service to friends who need a temporary forum or wiki (for example) for a project or to make files I need at work available (now surpassed by a large USB flashdrive).
It's more a plaything for me, with no real structure to it.
