Neat! I might be able to help with the lack of compute power since I have a
6 core ryzen 2600 processor with 24G of DDR4 as well as an older 8-core
bulldozer processor with 20G of ddr3.

I'm planning on eventually getting 32G of ram and an 8-core ryzen 3700x or

additionally, my brother has a stack of older servers that he might be
willing to lend (haven't asked him).
