This server room also works out great for continuing to make enterprise improvements to the Phoronix Test Suite / Phoromatic and showing off the real-world capabilities to corporations and other organizations looking for continuous integration benchmarking and other open-source automated testing needs.

My main office area is the least cluttered its been in years thanks to Phoromatic taking care of all my needs in the server room and just needing to go in there when fixing systems, fixing up a drink at the bar, or making other modifications.

With the projector, it's very easy to find the systems needing attention via Phoromatic or just showing off its other remote management capabilities.

Still working on figuring out an affordable and effective way for racking up laptops... If anyone has any ideas, feel free to post it in the forums.
