Comment: Instead of money, how about hardware? (Score 1) 245

Single threaded processes don't necessarily need the latest generation processors because they just keep adding cores. Instead of trying to buy a new server, why not just accept a donation of a 3ish year old dell/hp/supermicro server. Lots of businesses & universities have a hardware rotation cycle for really good hardware. I've bought perfectly good poweredge servers that were a few years old for under $50 before at a university computer auction.

Comment: Consider your stakeholders (Score 3, Insightful) 57

So how many of these countries have already sharded the internet behind their government firewalls, i.e. China/Russia? And we believe that all other governments are less corrupt and self serving than the US? I'm not a fan of the US Panopticon and stranglehold on critical infrastructure, but honestly, it's worked for several decades now why break it up? At least the US influence that conforms with the military influence we already have. It would be great if a multinational panacea existed to control it, but the closest thing we have to that today is the UN. It doesn't have a strong track record for being the most effective governing body out there. Corruption and government go hand-in-hand; one feeds the other.

Good luck getting all your devices on a stable connection over 600mb. It is technically possible, but the topology and composition of your home coupled with the quality of your device adapters/antenna may prevent sufficient signal for those speeds. It's hard to beat CAT5e+ when it comes to Gb connectivity. You can get all the parts and tools you need to wire and terminate it all at your local big box hardware store (i.e. Lowes, Home Depot, etc).
