Big boy toys!

Some do trucks, some do tractors, some do cranes...

Cool. Do you get to use it enough to justify the cost? (That's a serious question.)

I tend to rent cranes, tractors and trucks.

BTW, I have a high-end cement mixer for sale. Interested? FOB Barbados for $5000 USD. Please let me know if you are interested.

In that off-topic world, not even close. At the time of purchase I thought I would, but I spend more time getting it ready for use than I would renting. Hard to offload for anywhere near the sunk cost though so I keep it. I also still seem to believe there are 72 hours in a day and 12 days in a week when planning all of my projects. Material Handler, Mini Excavator, and BobCat all get plenty of use to justify owning. Heavy transport truck, trailer, and off-road crane mostly sit idle.

I wouldn't mind spending some time in Barbados though. I'm surprised you can compute at all for the cost of power on most islands (mostly familiar with Bonaire). Maybe we can setup a large sea-water cooled GIMPS cluster.

Ah, that's where you've gone wrong (as have I). There are actually only 84 hours in a day, and 14 days in a week. (This, of course, involves levering on those who report to you.)

I can recommend some excellent hotels and site-seeing.

Please note that I mostly don't compute, but rather manage compute.
