    hey,
    just some random fun,
    what kinda of server would we get we if we got all the computers from all the members of MR and put them in a server farm?
    would it be any good?
    what kinda of capacity could it handle?

    just some fun
    cheers

    We probably could take on Blizzard as the main WoW host:D

    [/although not a big fan]

    I would not be surprised with a server farm, for power and service it would be mediocre, but not bad. Probably all the computers on Macrumors in a Beowulf cluster could be be more impressive.

    • we could make a really really nice folding server :)
    • or a nice place to store all of our downloads and share them
    • or play some sort of INSANE simulation that has 1000 30inch monitors joined together :)

    What does that even mean in this context?

    You don't just have "a farm" and magically everything just works together super duper fast.

    haha of course not.. but i think he means how much computing power would it have (TFLOPS).

    internet speed would be the bottleneck here im guessing
