Old contraptions

Some examples of how not to treat your servers...

I was young, I didn't know better.


My first server "rack". In a cardboard box...


There were three computers in here... And Lego. Can you spot them all?


Cardboard replaced with laminated fibreboard. Also added a 4th computer.


Lots of very dusty storage space. Well, it was a lot of space back then.


The collection of computers soon conquered the entire closet.


Moved to another closet, added more glue and yet another computer.


I hadn't heard of cable management...


On the other hand, the heat was handled well by this temperature controlled fan.


The "exhaust pipe" led straight out the window.
