For those of you that have kept in touch with me over the holidays, you’ve likely heard me weave a tale of wonderment and joy as I’ve explained what I’ve had to do over my holiday break at work.
This picture pretty much captures the entire situation as succinctly as possible.
Now, after you get that seven foot rack up into that attic crawl space, figure out a way to jostle the equipment that’s already up there around to make room for it in a fairly cramped space, all the while having fun with a hydraulic scissor lift in the process, imagine, if you will, proceeding to carry up and install almost $50,000 worth of network equipment as well.
It made for some interesting work weeks.
I also have several pictures of us unboxing our new “toys”, but I’ll spare this blog from those images, even though there is one rather amusing shot of Shawn praying at the altar of his new Xserve and Xserve Raid. I will say one thing. Apple hardware is damn pretty in a rack.
