OK. What does the server setup have anything to do with how they're treated? i'm talking about how they're put up, installed, and that they're on 24/7. i've followed the virginia tech install since the day they released it, what's your point? OK... so they've invested lots of money into housing the machines, and setting it up... but what does that say about how they treat it? hm...Have you even seen the server setup, or read about the special room they housed the G5 cluster? If anything those Macs will be immaculate.
It's irrelevant how you would have treated them. Which would make me a little leery on having you as an employee judging on how you appear to treat equipment.
Here's an answer:here's a question: would you buy the audi TT, that's raced and won the 24hr. lemans, for more than a comparable, non-raced used TT? i don't think so...
... so, taking that into consideration, you'd probably drive the Audi into every wall on the track, and hit every pothole along the way.Yah, OK. I'm sure they all automatically got placed on metal racks. C'mon... if I were them, I wouldn't have give a damn.
First of all, I wouldn't buy a TT. Gimme an RX-8 instead...here's a question: would you buy the audi TT, that's raced and won the 24hr. lemans, for more than a comparable, non-raced used TT? i don't think so
1. that's not even an answer. that's another question.Here's an answer:
Did you drive it, or did a professional drive it?
There's the key difference, and the point I was making in the first plac
that's for me to worry about. thank-you.... so, taking that into consideration, you'd probably drive the Audi into every wall on the track, and hit every pothole along the way
count the "probably's". my point is that you're not even sure yet you talk as if you are. i never said they weren't abused, maybe they weren't. possibly massaged even. you were so "certain" they were not abused...But the point I was making was that they (the Va. Techs) probably "gave a damn" when installing the servers, therefore probably wouldn't have subjected the G5s to the carelessness you would have put them through (by your own words).
Ya gotta keep up with the news... they are replacing the G5 PowerMacs with G5 Xserves... see http://www.ehmac.ca/cgi_bin/ultimatebb.cgi?ubb=get_topic;f=1;t=005906Why are they selling them... are they dismantling the supercomputer???
