A couple of weeks ago there was this company called Bright Computing, that was pitching their software called Cluster Manager, which looked very cool as they had an excellent interface and could keep track of everything from machines, to routers, switches, power usage etc. Something to look into.

Comment Software + hardware based suggestion (Score 2, Interesting) 249

Software suggestion: Embrace cloud computing for all your data needs (assuming you have a good internet connection.) This will remove the problem of having to change hardware and replicate settings all the time.

Hardware suggestion: Cheap netbooks that can be resold to unsuspecting people in the desert :)

Comment Game the system... (Score 2, Interesting) 888

You can always game the system. Remember search engines will only find your name if it is indexed. So all you need to do is create a bunch of websites and pages about yourself that are clean and sanitized as per your requirements on websites like LinkedIn, Facebook, MySpace/Twitter, and some interesting blog sites that have high rankings as per ranking systems and high traffic such as Alexa (probably). Perform some search engine optimization on your webpages and profiles such that these sites come in the first page and is pushed back 2-3 pages. No one goes beyond the first page if they find the main stuff in the first few links. Remember that's why Google gave the "I'm Feeling Lucky" button.

Of course, if someone wants to they can find every detail on you, but you can divert them intelligently by using the internet. Think it over.
