    Yeh they look pretty good. Just wish they did them in different colours so I can work out which one is which without using silly stickers.

    This is coming along really nicely!

    The rack bezel is now painted gloss black which looks amazing.

    Also got these custom 25mm "buttons" made up which just so happen to fit in the dell bezel perfectly

    4 Hyper-V badges, 1 Symantec badge

    Time well spent me thinks!

    I like the idea of the custom badges, we just have some dymo tape to denote servers!

    Definitely looks pretty but slightly pointless seeing as you're the only person seeing them?

    Dymo tape is all you need

    Wow, you actually WANT to have symantec things on anything?

    And there's a very good reason why Apple aren't a huge force in servers... Looking good does bugger all!

    Looking very fancy, I find Dymotape works well, except when you get non-VM understanding people that go oh you only have 3 servers what is XenServer1 stand for, where is your Exchange server as you say you run Exchange.....

    Even better when you run email in the cloud

    Maybe I should make some cloud stickers to place on the wall or something haha

    stick the 'cloud' stickers next to your outgoing telco gear... when the ratio of clouds on the wall exceeds dymo tape on boxes, consider a new job!
