More than once over the last couple of years I’ve thought “I need a server for this“, or “It would be really handy to have a test environment for this“, and being a little bored… I’m starting a new project. It’s probably more than I need, and you probably think I’m a little crazy. But I have the skills, know-how, and money to have a little fun with it. This project is meant to be a bit of a living, breathing project, that will change and adapt over time. I know how I want to start it, so that’s what I plan to do.
I’m going to keep a running total of the costs of this project. [Pricelist] A little later I’ll get a list of ‘wins’ or purposes that I used the rack for, so I can see the costs of these wins. This is mostly just a curiosity, I’m already confident that I’m doing this on the cheap.
I plan to use as much of the random equipment I have laying around as possible. Some of this will end up being a little dated. If it is too dated to be useful, I’ll replace it.
