Crack Configurator 360 2012 __EXCLUSIVE__
Configurators can be found in various forms and different industries (Felfernig et al. (2014)). They are employed in B2B (business to business), as well as B2C (business to consumer) markets and are operated either by trained staff or customers themselves. Whereas B2B configurators are primarily used to support sales and lift production efficiency, B2C configurators are often employed as design tools that allow customers to "co-design" their own products. This is reflected in different advantages according to usage:

Configurators enable mass customization, which depends on a deep and efficient integration of customers into value creation. Salvador et al. identified three fundamental capabilities determining the ability of a company to mass-customize its offering, i.e. solution space development, robust process design and choice navigation (Salvador, Martin & Piller (2009)). Configurators serve as an important tool for choice navigation. Configurators have been widely used in e-Commerce. Examples can be found in different industries like accessories, apparel, automobile, food, industrial goods etc. The main challenge of choice navigation lies in the ability to support customers in identifying their own solutions while minimizing complexity and the burden of choice, i.e. improving the experience of customer needs, elicitation and interaction in a configuration process. Many efforts have been put along this direction to enhance the efficiency of configurator design, such as adaptive configurators(Wang & Tseng (2011);Jalali & Leake (2012)). The prediction is integrated into the configurator to improve the quality and speed of configuration process. Configurators may also be used to limit or eliminate mass customization if intended to do so. This is accomplished through limiting of allowable options in data models.
Do not fold or crease any of the clear vinyl panels, as cracking will result. Do not fold or store any canvas while wet. All canvas should be rolled or folded when dry and stored in a clean, dry area.
Why build a cracking rig? Because it's fun! This article will explain every step in building what I call a "budget" cracking rig. I wanted to save as much money as possible while still maintaining a robust solution that can perform at a small enterprise class level. I never could have imagined the hardest part was getting Nvidia drivers to install properly on Ubuntu, but never fear, every step of the process is included below. With a budget of $5,000 you will find the parts list, assembly, installation, and expected benchmarks if you want to try your hand at building this rig. Or you can go all out and attempt to match the awesome speed of Sagitta's Brutalis.

Ok let's get this out of the way. The $5000 "Budget" is tailored towards a small to medium size business and the avid cracking enthusiast crowd. I know this price is out of reach to curious hobbyist but there are still lessons to be learned from following this build. I wanted a rig with respectable performance that could cover cracking speeds of the most common hash types within one weeks time with fairly comprehensive attack plans. At the completion of a week cracking session, and following solid cracking methodology, I can feel I've given any cracking effort its proper attention with this rig. So with an estimated timeline of one week at full load/utilization I need reliability and purpose built. You're going to struggle to get that kind of multi-gpu performance from a gaming setup, and so I chose the Supermicro workstation to foot the bill. This workstation allows plenty of room, cooling, and upgradability to any future cracking plans. Also for the money, it's hard to beat the quality and included features of a Supermicro SuperWorkstation.
I know there will be many critics on why I chose to use Ubuntu Desktop and not Ubuntu Server, but I intend to use this rig, when it's not cracking, for other uses and thus need the desktop functionality. Links to all the software are included below and I will not cover how to install Ubuntu on a bootable USB but you can read that .
I have to say I'm pretty proud of this build and its future potential. There is always tradeoffs between which hardware to choose coupled with the compounding costs, but I think I've satisfied that happy middle ground. Rock solid performance and not applying for an extra line of credit to satisfy your technolust. As prices drop and new cracking techniques are developed, this rig will leave your options open to take advantage of those conditions.
I will be posting future upgrades and experiments in the very near future so please subscribe at the bottom for notifications and updates. Also you can follow me on Twitter @netmux.
