With all those memory channels, I was thinking of putting in 4 of these in it:

Of course, just those four cards will pull a full kilowatt. So a big power supply is a must.
Not to mention, I will eventually want a couple hundred TB of disk.

The power company is already sending me notices and graphs showing me what a power hog I am.
Look! You're using twice as much electricity as your neighbors! Would you like us to help you learn how to conserve energy?
:shock:

In the small print "Limit 2 per customer" ...sorry ,... but look at the money you will save on electric with "just" two ;>)

I would never do that, but I think it is legal in Washington and Colorado. I guess you have to have some kind of permit, though.
It would probably be a much bigger deal in other places. Looks like it's legal in more places than I thought:

I don't think it is a good idea to use or make it, but it's none of my business anyway
Taking ideas is not a vice, it is a virtue. We have another word for this. It is called learning.
But sharing ideas is an even greater virtue. We have another word for this. It is called teaching.
