oh, and I pray to god that you still have that 80GB WD caviar, need to buy it off you mate. We are doing about Mac OSX in college and I want to get a headstart, so ill nip on demonoid or TPB and get myself a copy of snow leopard :P
Bad news im afraid matey - college have said they would love to do such a folding project however they would need to do tests on all components coming in from outside, and they dont have the funding to do so as they would also be required to maintain 'x' rigs as its using their resources. Basically, they said yes then slammed the door shut in my face.
However, I think we should still try and set up a folding cluster of say 2 PC's. Ill be on steam after 5 so we can discuss it then youth.
