    Looking good.
    How bout some of these rackmount led lights.

    Or for a bit of fun, stick one of these in the bottom and stick the control with that nice red button on top next to a 'Do Not Touch' sign.

    What about getting some life size print of rack for the back wall of the stand make it look like a server room!!!
    Ric and I sat down a couple of weeks back and had a big chat about this. We orgionally looked at doing a 1u Atom powered server, but there are too many restrictions. Most boards will only accept a maximum of 4GB RAM, and we wern't sure if the Atom would handle many thin clients and VMs'. There was also the issue of storage in there. For a decent case that had 4 hot swap SATA 2.5 inch bays it was £424. Most other cases didn't have the space for more than 2 bays. There is also a hardware restriction level on the motherboards where they only have 3 SATA ports and no RAID.

    I am however looking at doing a 1u workstation to go in there. But as we are now actively spending money on BETT (2k on hotels this week, and yes, we are back in the Kensington Forum) I am watching the pennies!

    Oh! And Paul and I have discussed doing some rack banners as backgrounds, but time is running out and Ric (who is organsing the stand for us this year) wants to have some comfy sofas for you all to rest up on , so the stand will be a little less cluttered this year.

    I had the pleasure of seeing Russull Prue in action today and his 'Radio station in a case' is fantastic. The one he is using is only the prototype but I hope to get picks from the factory next week of teh final product.

    This sort of thing is really handy ... wish I could have one for work ... but I might get lynched by the council IT staff ... probably because they would want it!!!

    You're still missing rack-ears? RF is hiding from me (OK, he's on holiday) but I can call him and find out what address they went to etc.

    If need be I am sure someone is in your neck of the woods reasonably shortly - could get some dropped off maybe? Of just DHL em.

    Can't you improvise? I do often, a bit of 3mm steel plate from the DT Dept, cut it to shape and screw it on with some brass screws, easy as pie

    They arived today thanks. Even though 2 of the screws were the wrong size! I had spares, so no panic there.
    The switch has decided to die on me as well
    I'll have to take a trip to ICT Direct tomorrow for a replacement then drop it off at Rics for final fettling!
