Apologies if this is a silly/slighty off topic idea, but I thought I
would at least mention it...

I just bought a $250 refurbished Dell Optiplex 7020.  30 GB Ram. (Intel
says max Ram is 16GB...the RAM upgrader (crucial) says max ram is 30GB).
3 TB HDD.  4th generation Intel CPU.

I'm planning on having a simple server at home.  My ISP will let me run
my own server.  I'm not certain how good my internet connection will be,
but I would be interested in hosting a substitute server, though I would
guess that very quickly the cost of hosting it would get pretty
expensive...Just a thought.  A $250 desktop machine is fairly
inexpensive.  :)

Also, I just heard from Luke Leighton (from E0MA68 and the upcoming
libreGPU), that you could buy a raptor computer with 1TB of RAM for
about $40,000.  :)
