The car-size LIC cost me about £1,000. I built my first LIC (Larg's Internet Cluster) out of second hand hardware and free software.

The LIC works well and cost me a fraction of the price of a new setup. However, it was not pennies. The shopping list shows the wallet damage for both the LIC and my mini- data center, the shed.

Building a network architecture costs money. There is no way round it. I have listed what this project is costing me in these pages. If you are a resident of Ougadougou, Burkina Faso then I must point out that values are given in GBP (Great Britain Pounds, £, or sterling), not XOF.
