I hope you are kidding.
But seriously, conditions:
- accept _any_ computer equipment brought to you, or do you want to have a
conditional acceptance of equipment, like Jim's mom calling up - can I
bring you this?
- have maybe a rate of 10:1 to get a working machine - 10 coming in,
checking, disassembling, fixing, reassembling, what to do with the unusable
- have heterogeneous hardware of unknown origin, condition, reliability and
failure rate to do what - reliable high performance computing?
Not in my garden, I'd rather grow Tomatoes ;-)
What would be the computer hardware component which could theoretically
derived from salvage parts in a budget of running a Beowulf cluster? Zilch
by my books!
PS: Sounds more like the real story:
