Well, it just dawned on my about something. If you did this, AND ran a Computer shop, you could definitely make some serious dough, and save moulah.thumb.gif

Well, I had that thought.... but.... I have a full time job. I am not going to quit for a new start up.
Tried to get friends to run the shop, but all of them are junkies. They like to mess with computers and all, as long as they get to watch video or play games all day. Most don't even wake up during the day. It is REALLY hard to find a good worker.

I could see this working out great--- IF you found someone looking to rent out a corner of their machine shop or something. That would drastically reduce the rent payment, since you wouldn't need too much space. The only thing really holding you back is making up the rent payment in electrical savings, once you do that you're good to go.
Trust me, cooling is ALWAYS underrated. I am not talking about keeping things really cool, i am talking about keeping them under boiling hot.
iI use about 7KW continuously. That is like having a 7KW heater ON 24/7.
My apartment is about 800 sqft. During a 20F night, if I close half the windows, my apartment is still 80F.
During 40F days when winds are calm, I have to have 2 fans sucking in air, to keep the place at 75F
In the summer, it is just impossible. I can have a 2 ton AC unit on 24/7, and the place would still be over 95F

The best method is to get someone to put the PC in their college apartment/dorm with free electric.
But all the college people I know, they are only looking to get my free PC, and could care less about running the program.
I told one guy that I would give him a free high end gaming PC, all he had to do is buy a cheap $50 LCD monitor. And he told me to BUY him a 24inch monitor, and MAYBE he will run the software.

That's a pretty cheap guy... O_O

We don't have to rent our own office space. Just need to find a local business to house it and pay a minimal fee monthly plus the electronic cost of course
