The good news is, the servers can be as loud as I want them to be, the bad news is that summer is here and my air conditioner failed.  It didn’t even make it a year, which is very disappointing.  Luckily I was able to pick one of these up on Craigslist the same day so that my servers didn’t melt in the Texas heat:

Are you married?

Yes!  What’s the best way to get your garage cleaned?  Promise your husband that he can build a data center.  Done!  Kscope17 is coming up soon, so I’ll have a post about that early next week.  Until then, have a great weekend!
