Simple fix; just don't mention that they're 85Mhz processors. Your average
user will
take "20 processor Sun S2000" at face value without knowing or caring, as
long as it's
responsive. The above-average user will already know that 85Mhz doesn't
matter, it's
still responsive.

Some of the cheapest colo I found around here when I was looking ~ a year
ago for a
systems analysis class project was in chattanooga.... can't remember the
company but it was pretty lonely, should be easy to google it.

Hey, not a bad idea actually. You got knowledge, you got hardware [1],
ambition, no money, no suits, it can work :-)

[1] 85 MHz? I heard for databases it's better to have lots of processors
fast ones :) )
