Just saw this in my GCN issue for this week. Didnt know they moved into the server arena. Interested to see how they are setup and perform.

Haven't heard about them in ages.

Looks cool either way. I want one (okay, what I _really_ want is  as many computers as possible).

*looks at the bastard with that cluster with envious eyes*

And I thought I had a lot of computers for a home user!

I wonder if they're overclocked, all of their stuff used to be, I don't know if it still is.  But they do look really cool...

Bastard!  >:(

How did you manage that anyway ?

Nice though. I wish I had that many computers ... (well except I have no more room for computers).

They all came with monitors and keyboards and mice too.  I went to a university's surplus auction.   ;D

Nice. That's all I can say. Well, maybe also lucky.
