That's the most strangest thing I've ever heard in my life...I do it all the time...Belden CDT 2 port jacks when you don't have a coupler, works wonders...or even a cross connect...
Finally replaced my Dell 2724 Gigabit switch with an HP 1810G-24 "fanless" Gigabit switch.
--Why I waited this long I'll never know. It was well worth the money though!! I tried hacking my 2724 to get it quieter. I tried rubber pads and grommets to isolate the fan noise. I eventually replaced the fans with specialized units from Digikey but still managed to produce a noticeable noise in my office. I finally found an HP 2724 for around $150 shipped. Hell, I would have paid much more now that I have it running. It was the last item in my office to finally be silenced. I now have near complete silence and I couldn't be happier...
that horrendous closet I posted earlier......its getting redone starting wednesday
I have 4 almost full HP 5412's staged for it at the moment
Ill try and grab a pic each morning after we complete work
sadly we were only able to get an approved downtime window of 5:30a-8a
...why are there 2 big WorkCenter MFPs sitting right next to eachother?
What is the management like for the PA-200? Webgui I imagine? What is the difference in specs between the SSG and the PA-200 (primarily throughput)?
Also, nice PDU. IP I see. How much that set you back?
POST REST OF CCIE RACK!
It isn't very clear in the picture. We have a series of "closets" in a five story building that were placed in a central utility shaft that runs from the top floor to the bottom. The racks are sitting on a mesh floor that bounces as you walk on it. Essentially, I stand over more than five stories of open air whenever I work on those racks. Hate it, hate it, hate it.
Yeah I wouldn't want to do that... i scared the crap out of myself working in NYC once. I was in a building near the apple store, about 50 stories up I think... anyway in the delivery elevator area is a "garbage shaft" that is essentialy a STRAIGHT DROP from the top of the building to the bottom. where you drop the garbage bags... o m g was that scary. I was even looking over a safety wall but mannnnnnnnn the wind coming up it was just scary as anything
