[H-GEN] Rackmount boxes at home

I used to have an almost fully populated 46ru rack at home, but with the
cost of power and the annoyance of moving all those servers and switches
when the family and I move has meant I have had to rationalise. My media
centre is on 24x7 so I built a new one with a quad core and 12gb of ram to
visualise my old servers and computers, then swap out my x86 firewall for a
ddwrt. All working well at the moment.

G'day Ben,

If you have a few boxes and want to keep things tidy, especially if your
partner would like things a little tidier, then a rack cabinet is probably
the best way to do this.  It also ultimately saves space.

Hi all,

Does anybody bother with 19" racks and rackmount server cases at home?  Is
it worth the trouble trying to track down the required hardware to save

Cheers, Ben.
