What I would like to know about Google, is this. I read around the
time that Google started, that is was originally powered by massive
numbers of second hand machines. Was that true.?
I'd like to know too. The fact or factoid stuck in my mind, because
I /wanted/ it to be true. Which makes me a bit suspicious.
