my little bro brought em home after his work removed their old servers. they told him to go destroy em, but he gave em to me instead (guess it makes up for him breaking my old HDD) :P

...there's 3TB of space exactly, all drives have been tested and are working (just finsihed checking the last one a minute ago). the ones that broke during the move are in the trash...was a good 10 or 12 of em (he wasn't exactly gentle) <_ any how he ganna be bringing the server cases and stuff home sometime next week...so it looks like i having some serious processing power hdd space here in a bit setup small network too :d>

after i get the server tower and stuff i might be setting up a small network (so i don't have to share mine anymore). but i might end up selling a few on ebay or something too, cause you're right, i don't need THAT much space :P

anyone with a PayPal account that wants a drive can PM me, will be glad to give yall first dibs...does $20-25 a pop sound good? :lol:

@jdawg - https://www.paypal.com :lol:

@sliver - i know, and i can't wait to see what kinda hardware the servers have. hopefully they have some 1GB sticks of RAM in a few of em (that match my mobo slots obviously), that would help me out alot :P

well, jus basically a cheap computer with good connections, and try using linux for ur private server, yea for the bill part, u might want to buy a laptop for that, and shut down unnecessary .exe 'cept for the ones to run a server, i think there's a prog for that, but i deleted mine >_<

they destroy em to prevent people from getting personal data about customers. but, yeah, destroying mobos, ram and all that good stuff is just stupid :lol:
