Notes The Cluster consists of an Experiment in Computer Recycling. All Hosts are different, some, Rack 0, are 64 Dual Core and others, Rack 1 are i386 Single Core PCs. All have at least 1GB of Ram and a Hard Drive of 80GB. All Mainboards have at least on problem, 1 Memory Slot damaged, USB or PS2 Ports with problems, etc. and are of no real use anymore. This is an ongoing experiment with a LOT of downtime and hands-on, since most parts are prone to fail sooner than later. But on the other hand I have had close to no monetary expenses, except some indispensable stuff, like wood to build a Rack, and slightly higher Electric Bill than normally.
