in thread A distributed design challenge

I don't understand your calculation that if 36 servers bid $99 with a total budget of $100 and all win, that they are $35 over limit and not 36*$99 -$100.
I think you misparsed the original statement. He was saying that there is $1 total left in the budget at that time and all 36 servers are trying to spend $1 at the same time.

    Ok, this makes sense. They would bid only $1 because their budget is limited to $1, instead of making the bid they calculated as sensible.
