    What would you do do bring an automated income stream? I have two workstations that were being used to render large scenes/complex models in Solidworks and Maya, but are now making less money as more people are turning to online render farm services. Any automated way to monetize these beasts? I am running 1 off a solar powered rig with battery bank during the day. Using home power at night. Already saving as much electricity as possible. Each has 32cores with 48GB ram. only 2TB storage but that can easily be upgraded.

    Any ideas?

    Well you can open an online render farm service like your competitors do. :)

    Oh wait, i'm sure you are really eager to know if there are aliens on the universe, you can lend your calculation power to SETI :p
