Finally got power to the study/office sorted yesterday ๐Ÿ™‚ Two 32A Commando’s on the wall and 14 (I think) regular 3-pin outlets for other duties. Will post a pic or two of the install tonight/tomorrow, it was finished at 23.30 last night…! Really tidy install, saw it all tested and all good. Really happy with it. Now I have the ability to power everything up all at once (or to have it all powered on at the same time, a boot storm of all that kit wouldn’t be very clever), if not the cool weather. It is coming on Autumn and Winter though, and Sod’s Law states that the UK cannot be so lucky with this warmer weather for too long. Plenty to do to tidy up tonight, everything was left in a bit of a mess last night, but I have been amalgamating all my fitting kit and cabinet accessories. I’ve got everything from HP power cord clips for the back of PSU’s (amazing what you find kicking around next to the cardboard bins in datahalls…) to HP stickers for marking up PSU’s, NIC’s and drives. It’s going to be a joy to cable it all up carefully and correctly, unlike some of the stuff we get handed ‘in production’ in the day job. I want power down one side, network down the other, carefully bundled and routed. Pictures will definitely make their way onto here. I’ve been doing a lot of research on cabinet design, taking many peoples opinions on the best way to do things and noting the ideas I like. Once posted, I would welcome advice/criticism/flaming, every day is a school day and learning never stops ๐Ÿ™‚

Happy days, more to follow ๐Ÿ˜‰
