Where is the actual Yahoo Answers building, and servers located?

Question by Mr. Spin: Where is the actual Yahoo Answers building, and servers located?
They must have a huge cluster of servers and hard drives. Is it possible that the servers are located in different parts of the globe, yet networked together?

I was in a warehouse of major college, doing service work (on a Liebert Unit, cooling system for DATA rooms) and noticed tons of racks on storage shelves, each rack must have had a hundred hard drives installed. They looked like they’d slide in (like trays) into a large housing somewhere.

All of those hard drives collecting dust, doing nothing, and becoming obselete each day…..

They were probably active drives!

Thigns were fine once Windows 7 was installed. But I did have to temporarily lug the spare monitor (conveniently stored in Carolyn’s closet 5 feet away from the computer) in order to finish installing Windows 7 without feeling like I was destroying my 50 52" HDTV. It was all crazy and blinky and such, and I don’t want to do that to it.

installing Windows.
Sharp Aquos TV, TV, Windows 7 operating system software.

BACKSTORY: The death of Hades‘s 2007 motherboard. (Abit IP35 Pro Socket with 2G of DDR2 800mHz memory.) At the time, I was unsure if it was the power supply (OCZ GameXStream OCZ600GXSSLI 600W power supply) or the motherboard. In the end, both had to be replaced. Not happy that OCZ’s product allowed itself to be killed by a faulty motherboard. My OCZ RAM melted too, so I am done with OCZ. Also had some minor harddrive corruption on my oldest harddrive (which was my C: system drive, which I will be reformatting soon and using only for backups).

Have since upgraded the power supply to a Corsair CMPSU-750TX 750W power supply, and the motherboard to an ASRock P43DE3 LGA775 motherboard with 8G of DDR3 1600mHz RAM (but I could only run it at 1200 or 1333mHz). Between that, and upgrading to Windows 7 (installed on my 2nd youngest drive), it is like a completely different, new, faster computer. Total upgrade cost was about 0. (I’m using the same CPU, an Intel Core2 Duo E6750 2.66gHz.)

Actually, the first replacement power supply was either killed by the motherboard, or I failed to test it correctly with the power supply tester. I RMA’ed it back to NewEgg, and apparently swapped the boxes (or so they claim), so my RMA was rejected, and I was billed a 2nd time. So this really cost about 0 now, thanks to NewEgg being such sticklers. When I finally get the 2nd one back, I’ll test it again. If it’s really broken, I’ll have to RMA it a second time to Corsair. The 5 year warranty should cover it, but I’ll still end up having bought 2 power supplies. Might be time to take up my friend who wanted me to build a computer for her…
