Here's part one of a hardware project I've been working on the last couple of days:

@sandyman Hey, would you mind describing the whole RPi cluster thing you've got going on? I can -feel- it having potential, but I can't see the picture clearly enough to do anything with it yet.

@konc I based it on someone else’s post, tbh. I can see if I can find it again. I initially wanted to use it as a kubernetes cluster, but now I’m just using it as a tiny server farm. A server ant farm, so to speak. 😄

@sandyman I've seen the term kubernetes pop up a lot in the past week, but I still don't know what the heck it is. Feels like a 2020 problem. 😆

@sandyman Were you by any chance able to find the post in question?

@sandyman @konc Also, I’m no longer running kubernetes. I just installed Ubuntu 19.10 server and now run all sorts of services off the cluster. So, it’s not set up as a “supercomputer“ either.

@sandyman Oh I didn't even think about running Ubuntu on RPi, that's a great idea!
