Right now I'm at the point of having enough working systems to start trying out
the software. Over the past 18 months (more or less) I had to learn how to
build systems from parts and how to network them together. I plan on starting
with Mosix software, then I will work with SuSE's "salt" software.

Lets see.. "non_profit"? Well yes and no, if you mean money in the hand then
yes it is non-profit. But if you mean learning anything then it's been very
profitable so far.
"Common_Good Research purposes" -- mmmm that's a good one. I would have to say
yes to it. Because since I started I've got a newbie's email list going for
Beowulfs. I think it's been helpful.
On the idea of "common-good" here in the EU starting in about a year you must
recycle your old systems, no more throwing them away. So when I take parts I'm
saving you from having to pay for recycling. Also I plan on is trying to show
how to recycle old computers. By the time the recycling starts I want to be able
to show someone the way to build a usable recycled system.
<p>Hope you had a merry Christmas and Have a happy New Year!
