Not rhetorical! I ask what you peeps’ reasons are.
I guess I am afraid of a hard drive failure. Because the last time I did something like this, hard drives spun.
I am not looking to replace SDF or anything, I’d like to actually have less formal, more friendly arrangements for hardware provisioning. Meaning, less an open coop anyone can join, and more into, “I need space, you need space, let’s share space?”
I know of a local-ish colo company called Monkeybrains, and they have a couple neat offerings: Colocation - Monkeybrains.net
I’d absolutely love to colo here in Oakland, but I don’t know of any spaces that would give us an appointment. But also, we are at least two coasts! Meaning we should be able to do interesting things with hardware and networking, ya know?
I know I have projects I could use dedicated hardware for, so let me know what you folks are thinking about, and let’s get on this, if it is a thing to be gotten on.
