I'm thinking of making one at work.

Think of it as CPD, if you like.

We have 10 old RM computers [F-series] just sitting there gathering dust.

We also have 4 switches sitting around, plus a lot of various cables.

Our head would probably let me do it... But, I can't think of a use for it...

    That's why you do it for the hell of it. Never know what you might learn.

    Indeed, that was the original plan.

    But, then I though... Why not make something that can actually be used!

    Perhaps I'll turn it into a cloud mmo LAN server for pupils... though 10x the processing power of an F-series is probably still not enough to run a decent mmo.

    hey there - do research on beowulf clusters - i used to be a member of their mailing list and discussed lots of things on there relating to what you're trying to do. I think there is an premade linux distro for making a beowulf cluster (computers connected by lan).

    Will be interested to hear alot about this!

    The planning stage of PROJECT BORG starts on Monday.

    I've been looking into Beowolf clusters and it seems like that's where I'm heading.
