Building the "Gordo-48" and "fitting it all together."

A Gordo-48 replaces 40 standard Servers but uses less than 500 Watts in an hour.

A standard Server uses around 500 Watts, times 40 Servers = 20,000 Watts per hour. You do the math. - Todd W. Byars, Computer Dudes, Tallahassee, Florida

"The existence of a polynomial-time quantum algorithm proves that one of the most widely used cryptographic protocols is vulnerable to an adversary who possesses a quantum computer. However, it is theoretically accepted that quantum computers could equally be used to counteract against adversarial actions of this kind with the laws of quantum mechanics applied in this cryptographic capacity (through use of quantum computers) paving the way to quantum cryptography."

Our "Gordo-24" is a "Quantum Computer" that can be configured for non-standard computing. ;)T

Nice Try Iran. You hacked one level of passwords on one of our servers but got locked out due to the geographic location of your servers.
Next time, mask your IP number. Don't be too embarrassed, we busted China with the same trick over a year ago. ;)T

Hackers or NO-Hackers, Start of the New Year with new Passwords and better Security Habits.

on 03 Jan 2020  Posted by Administrator  Category: Security News  

I bet you haven't changed your Password since "Last Year."   Probably a safe bet given December of 2019 was only a few days ago.

So start the year with New Passwords and Security Practices.    This article reviews passwords and basic security practices for an individual at work, home, and around town.


The main problem with most passwords is they are too short.   The second biggest problem is people keep the same passwords too long.   Both these issues are easy to solve.  A password should be more than 10 digits and contain several special characters in it along with some numbers.  

Change Passwords?  How Often?

How often you change your passwords is a combination of personal preference and risk.    For example, if you work in a bank, financial institution, corporation, or government entity you have a high risk and should change your passwords often.  Your organization may have a recommended maximum time length to keep passwords, check and see to make sure you are in compliance.    For high risk occupations you should change your password Monthly. 

If you are just a regular citizen in a low risk profession or retired then you can get away with keeping the same password for a while, but you should still change it several times a year.    

These are general guidelines based on best practices for individuals, small businesses,  government, and corporations and may be subject to change.   Stay alert and keep your data safe! :) 

Computer Dude's Working Prototype is the world's first "Glow in the Dark" computer server. Our 24 microcomputer cluster, the "Gordo-24," enters production.

on 22 Dec 2019  Posted by Administrator  Category: Technology  

Computer Dude's Working Prototype "Gordo One" is the World's First "Glow in the Dark" computer/server.   

Our 24 Microcomputer Cluster, named "Gordo," enters production with multiple color and material options including "glow in the dark."  Project Gordo is 2 months ahead of schedule. 

Project Gordo,  World's First Glow in the Dark Computer / Server, a 24 Microcomputer Cluster.  After successful prototyping and testing, production of Gordo began last week.  :) 

Engineering and Design Team

T. Byars, R&D Engineer, Inventor 
B. Martin, Linux and Clustering Engineer
J. Bagwell,  Microsoft and Virtualization Engineer
A. Satchell,  AutoCAD, CAD designer
S. Byars,  Engineer, Quality Control
J. Janes, Engineer,  Structural and Metals Fabrication
J. Carlson (deceased)  Engineer, Lighting and Electric, Blue Glow Proponent 

Gordo-24 Specs and Stats

24 Quadcore ARM Processors = 96 Cores running from 1.2 to 2 Ghz
96 Gigabytes of DDR4 RAM
3 Tb MicroSD Solid State Hard Drives
24 Gigabit, Wake On LAN Wired Ethernet, PoE Enabled 
24 Multicore GPUs, each GPU can run two 55 Inch 4K Televisions concurrently. 
24 Wifi adapters
24 Sound Cards
48 USB 2.0
48 USB 3.0
48 HDMI Outputs

Advantages (over every other computer server on the planet)

1) Energy Savings
2) Low Power Use,  250 Watts at 5 volts DC.
3) Heat Savings = Air Conditioning Savings,  The chips automatically slow down when they pass a certain temperature.
4) Small and Light.   Each Gordo replaces 2 full racks of standard servers. 
5) All the software is Free,   Standard Configuration is with Raspberian Linux, with SAMBA4 including load balancing.
6) It's Linux so it doesn't get viruses.

Additional Features you will not find any any other Server on the planet:

Dual 16 Port PoE Gigabit Switches, built into the computer.
850 Va, 550 Watt UPS Battery Backup with Surge Protector and Digital Info Display, built into the computer. 

The Price as Configured Above = $5,500  (price includes all software and licenses) 

We include pre-configuration for your network including routing, services, security, backup and other standard services on a Linux Server running SAMBA4 and serving as a file and print server.

The Systems are Modular so Spare Boards and MicroSD hard drives may be kept as onsite repair parts.   Pre-configured parts and drives are ready to plug in and "go" with your networks standard configuration within minutes of any hardware or software failure. 

Each Gordo-24 replaces 2 full Racks of Servers. 
"Glow in the Dark" is an optional feature not included in the price above.   The standard Gordo-24 will be made of clear or colored plastics.

"Chico" is ready for On-Site Demo's in Offices and Homes. "Chico" can replace your Rack Servers, Routers, and Security Devices.

on 10 Nov 2019  Posted by Administrator  Category: Security News  

"Chico" is READY for demonstration in your Office!   "Chico" is our 8 computer cluster that can replace an entire rack of Computer Servers.

For the demonstration we bring Chico to your office or home!  Bet you can't name any other computer company that can do an onsite demo with the hardware and software present! 
During the demonstration any employee workstation can log into Chico and see a File Server, Users and Groups, Shares, Backups, a Print Server and Internet through Chico.

Here are some of the top features:

Chico is smaller than a loaf of bread and consumes a maximum of 120 watts. 
If you use Chico to replace one rack of standard servers, your power bill will drop by around a hundred dollars a month. 
All software and licenses are free.
Your workstations won't be able to tell the difference between our Linux Servers and traditional Microsoft Servers.
You will regain the office space occupied by the old servers. 
Reduced Heat and Noise
The System is modular and can be expanded at any time if you need more power or servers.   Just add another Chico. 

Another benefit - "No down time for server upgrades."  The old servers and network can run concurrently with Chico until the old is no longer needed and turned off.  

The Icing on the Cake?   All the software is Raspberian, or other free versions of Linux.  No expensive Microsoft Software or Server Licenses to purchase!!

The Price is Right!!
The Chico 4  starts at $1,450
The Chico 8 starts at $ 1,950
(The number next the name indicates how many Raspberry Pi 4B computers are in that version of Chico.)

Contact us for more information, for a demonstration, or to order.   Sorry we are only offering demonstrations in the Tallahassee, Florida, area for the time being.

Thanks, Todd W. Byars,  Inventor and Design Team Leader
