IMG_3803.JPG (450484 bytes) The two 1U aluminum at the top is a keyboard/mouse/monitor changer and a 10Mbit HUB both was originally supposed to be used but a 16 port 100Mbit switch fased out the slow HUB and "Remote Desktop Connection" was used instead of the monitor switch

The white front is an empty shell (soon to be server)

WebServer still have prototype front

Two FileServers at the bottom only needs handles
