I am in so much trouble …


I was poised to look into a few more ODROID or NANOPI as an extension of my cluster, then a 2U Dell PowerEdge 2950 with dual 3GHz CPU with 8Gb memory is at action, with only two hours to go, no bids so I went with $15.

So that would be 2×4 Core for 8 all up.

Good enough for a Chapel box.

Not sure how I will hide it from the wife.

So, hopefully someone will decide to outbid me.

POST SCRIPT

In the last half hour of the auction, two others made a run.  One an auto bid and one manual.   I worked out that the auto bid had fizzled, they had set their max to $50 just as I had.

So, I sat poised to make a last bid as the auction was about to close – assuming that the manual bidder might be assuming both auto bids had fizzled and weren’t being tracked or that the manual bid would be fumbled in the last few seconds of the web based auction.

Tension was high.

My bid was in the browser waiting for that last button click.

The clock ticking down.

With 10 seconds to go, enough time to get the bid in but to befuddle someone trying to get a counter bid in before close, I … I … I … chickened out.

Fair the well  2U Dell PowerEdge 2950 with dual 3GHz CPU with 8Gb memory, fair the well.  I hope you went to a nice home.
