I was totally surprised when I was out for a ride and happened to notice a little sign on this +/- 700 hundred year old farm-house and decided to stop. After a moment of evaluating the situation I decided to drive on to the property and parked my scooter between a truck and a big tractor. When I took off my helmet the smell of cow manure and noise really hit home the fact that this was what it looked like, a dairy farm! But the sign said computers, so I still got mixed messages as I walked up to a traditional wooden barn door with an “open” sign. Once inside it looked like the computer section of a big electronics retailer complete with neon signs, racks of liquid cooled processors, motherboards, and rows of laptops, tablets, and the latest monitors.
