All I can do is state the facts for those watching this list - which the
majority are US I would wager. We don't have near the same pricing.

BTW, according to the restrictions of, placed on them by IBM,
you wouldn't be able to use it for because it is in part geared
towards commercial development.

See bottom of this page:

The guys are doing good work, so I don't want this to seem
like I don't value what they are accomplishing (to my knowledge, it is
unprecedented), it just doesn't fit my (or your) needs for developing things
we can make money off of.

you obviously isn't living in a country (or area in US) where one KW cost

after normal tax (25% VAT) is added ;-)

The 515 I have installed consumed 6.000KW running 24/365 with aircon in 4

Because the 515 is just a part of the households powerconsumtion I can't
the cost in tax, that means that I have to pay the bill out of earned money
has been taxed with about 65% before I pay the bill.

So suddenly the calculation looks like 6000KW * 35 cents / 0,35 (net after
tax) =
6000 USD that I have to earn to pay the bill.

After that you can add the inconvinience of having a server in a household,
space used etc., the expences/time used of keeping it up to date, the
service cost
or repair bills, the depreciation of your investment in hardware etc. etc.

Is it beginning to look like a bargin to you to buy the same to have the
same possibilities
for 100 USD a month in US - all tax deductable ?

Or, if the same service existed in India or China for 20 USD a month, to
move over
there ?

This is just globalization, who cares if the service is placed in "your
bedroom", in US
or in China - if it is the same service ?
