Home Lab

While there are plenty of people building home lab building one in Bangalore was interesting. It’s an experience building one especially in India where ebay is still not as prominent as in other regions getting hardware was a challenge and building a white box out of one from EBAY or SP Road (Bangalore) would mean that I have to put in more time maintaining one. But yes OLX helped me to a certain extent
