Lightbulb Slowing down for a while

Hi guys,

For a long while, I've been reading a lot on this forum, participating in threads now and then and contributing to the FAH team over the years going as high as 15th position in our team.

Some of you will notice that I've slowed down a bit recently and will be slowing down some more as I'm actually in the process of setting up a small server room at home for my home lab, including rack cabinet, cooling, power, networking, etc. In that same process, I'm letting go my tower servers to get rack mounted hardware.

Expect a worklog on this (hope to find the time to do this). Right now, I'm waiting for my first "acquisition" to come in... More on this when it actually arrives. It should pack a nice punch

Quick update: initial run indicates about 25-30K PPD per node so about 100-120K PPD for the box while consuming about 1100 Watts.
