    So I was clearing out a building (a small company Verizon bought out) and I came across 95 old 64mb usb flash drives, still in the box... Giveaways for some event some time in the past. I really want to daisy chain a crapton of hubs and put together a 6080MB 95-disk software raid array for giggles. Only problem is that it would be about $75 worth of hubs, at the cheapest.

    I wonder if I should start a kickstarter or something...

    Maybe you should give them to charity. Lots of starving kids in Africa would love to eat them I'm sure.

    Now if you used 95 encryption keys fobs, I would be interested.

    I might even fire up my old Lotus Notes server for that.
