Well I thought I would throw this out there. Yes I did some searching but not able to find a satisfactory answer. As broad as the question is, I am hoping for a few broad ideas. Like the heading states, what could you build with 9 machines? An array? A pile of junk? I just feel that somehow connecting all the CPUs, mother boards, graphic cards ... 6 zip drives, 2 CDROM cardridges, 8 DVD drives, could make somthing kinda neat. It's been a long night, so Ill check back and try and post pictures, or a more detailed list if anyone finds the topic worth replying to. Thanks for any input and constructive ideas!
