Intel server mainboard 2 x 1.0GHz Pentium III Socket 370's with 1.5GB SDRAM: FREE
Server chassis with decent cooling, 400W redundant power supplies: FREE
3Ware 9500-S8 SATA 64bit PCI RAID5 board: $250 (eBay) http://www.3ware.com/products/serial_ata9000.asp
4 x 400GB WD 7200 SATA150 16MB Hard Drives: $570 (NewEgg)
SATA Cabling: $10
Misc mounting parts: $20
Since HD makers mark a GB as a billion bytes, the drives are really about 372GB. Given RAID 5 overhead, I should have 1,116 GB usable or 1.01 TB. I did it all for $850. Provided I did cheat a bit with some free stuff. My advice: Make friends with an electronics recycler near you.
These parts are in the mail right now, so I've yet to tackle putting it together. I chose 3Ware because they have good Linux support, so I shouldn't have any problems getting this up and running. I'll benchmark it and write some more about it after I actually get it.
Why would they need the Boneli Reflex-Arc Test or the Voigt-Kampff test when the androids holed up in Isidore's apartment have a Penfield equiped alarm device that induces severe panic in humans? Such an effect would be an easy android test. The book insinuates that it would not panic the androids. This happens in chapter 14:
Isidore said, "Won't the alarm affect us?"
"That's right," Pris said to Roy Baty, "It'll affect Isidore."
Also, Rachael gives Rick a device that interrupts breathing in humans or androids, only androids can't recover as well as humans. This also seams like an easy test, not one that can falsly identify an empathy lacking human as an android as the Voigt-Kampff test might. Not to mention you could apply the breathing test or the panic test pretty much involuntarily of the subject.
Well, here it is: The Apple Tree
I'm not using WEP for my home network, and instead I am using OpenVPN (great project) to encrypt my traffic between my AP and car (mp3 syncing mostly).

I'm currently installing Gentoo 2004.3 hppa. It seams the be the most up to date hppa distro, even though it may be painful on a 180MHz machine. What do I know, I'm just a hobbiest.

Please don't be greedy.
