Although I don't have any experience setting up a large cluster, I'm
handy with setup and benchmarking, and could be willing to come help
I am a contract administrator and usually work 9-12 month contracts
(currently in Florida). My contract will be ending Feb 18 and I was
planning on taking some time off for rest and relaxation. It just happens
that I think I would find setting up a large Debian cluster both resting
So, if you need some help for a few days to a couple of weeks, and you plan
on doing this late Feb or early March, I would love to come down and help
out whoever you get to lead this.
