I’ve had a few people ask what my basement server rack looks like. Since I’m about to reconfigure the rack, I thought that this would be a good time to document a bit of the “before” and “after”. This is obviously the “before”.

The reconfiguration will include replacing a cranky, ten year old Tripp Lite SmartPro 700RM UPS (the grey device at the very bottom of the rack) with a pair of brand new, slim line APC Smart-UPS 750VA units. I also need to find room to stuff a second Power Macintosh G4 and an Xserve in there somewhere.

Much to my chagrin (and silly pleasure) this photo has been featured on several geektastic sites over the past week or so, including:

Cult of Mac

Thanks for the linkage, folks.
