“The things you own end up owning you.”
– Tyler Durden from the movie Fight Club
About a week ago, I received a new processor to install in my file/media server. The idea was to replace the quad-core processor (which is overkill for a file server) with a low-power dual-core processor. The price difference between the low-power dual-core and the higher-power quad-core would allow me to make money on the trade (by selling the quad-core) and also benefit from energy savings as well (since the server is running 24/7).
