So many good blade servers show up on ebay with pretty decent specs but they are useless without the rack to supply power and most lack a way for adding video. I'm talking about 3 year old blades with dual quad core Xeons and 8Gb of memory for $50. Even if you did rig one up the cooling fans would be deafening for desktop use.

My understanding was that you used to be able to exchange them for USD. Most places stopped that and then only did the Euro. Now they won't do that anymore. Is there a place to exchange bitcoins for cash anymore? If the answer is no then it sounds very much like a Ponzi scheme. Someone keeps telling you that you have plenty of money but good luck trying to withdraw any.
