    Same, I'll be building one if I cnlan convince my school. If so we can be cutting edge and have a portable backup for our whole network, that would be sweet as!

    I will vouch for its wheel-ability though! It does wheel around London very well, in and out of the taxi, in the hotel etc, it is very portable and a very good product.

    Only small bit is the very strange looks you get putting it in the taxi and from people in lifts they are expecting it to go tick tick tick tick *BOOM*

    One lady when I came out of the lift with it on the Sunday morning sort of jumped back a bit and gave it a wide birth and looked very strangely at me and it (I had my big coat on, a HP rucksack, blue bag from BETT wheeling the SIRB behind me - does that sound dodgy?)

    I have convinced my school to allow me to make a SRIAB. I have roughly a £2000 in April / May time when our budget comes in. They agree that its ideal to have a backup. Only in my instance, I will be having a 6U case, 2x 1U servers (1 for curriculum, 1 for admin), a ruckus zone director with 1 AP drilled to the case, and a 24 port HP Procurve switch with PoE.
