    Sorry if this is a repost.

    But, it's pretty cool, IMO.

    Holy Shit! What really struck me odd were some of those hand built things they call servers. Just a plain MB with a hd and power supply attached. No cover nothing, just some horrid looking space alien looking custom things they call servers. Not HP not even Sun Micro. And HD's? They must have a huge failure rate. Who uses HD's now adays. All my laptops and pcs are running SDD. Nothing else will suffice in my opinion. If i never see another HD in my life, ill be too happy.
