    Hmmm.... can't see the link. Perhaps it's a new domain and it hasn't percolated through to me yet. Any idea what the IP is as of now?

    This is... a joke, right?

    I can see the site now.

    Obviously, the site is brand new, but - if it isn't a joke - the physical site isn't. They're just adding mini support.

    Still - again, if true - it's a cool idea. Cheap own-your-own-server hosting.

    Why they wouldn't use cheap-ass PCs is beyond me (and, I'm sure, they do use them for other purposes). The mini is just marketing.

    Maybe it's just a scam to get people to send them their minis....

    Because you can't fit nearly the same amount of PCs in that rack as you can minis. :)

    And I'm guessing that you can't rack mini's that tightly without melting them - but I guess we'll see!

    Still, if valid, the concept has some appeal. :)
