Okay, I'll admit it: I love clusters. But until I realized the profitability of bitcoin mining, I never had a justification for keeping one running.

Now I can't wait to build one.

Did this happen to anyone else?

I've gotta admit, that I love having servers. Makes me feel powerful. Though I don't think mine are powerful enough to do any serious mining. D:

I have a cluster of 200 Apple II computers all networked together to provide 1 Mh/s of mining power.

Yes.  I am obsessed with bitcoin rigs.

I buy and sell GPUs, most 5850s and 7970s.

You are on your way to having a nice cluster there! FPGA makes it look so clean and easy!

That's almost certainly not worth it. The GPU instances use Nvidia cards, which from what I gather are slow at hashing. Plus they cost $2.10/hr ($1500/mn).
