Data Center Cooling, The Dexter Way

From the submitter:

A roll of plastic and three hours later, we could completely turn off one of the cooling units, which had been on full blast for years. The servers now breath in only cold air from the cooling units, and the cooling units only warm air from the servers.

Frankly, I am shocked and appalled that they found the blueprints to TIFI's server room.

From the submitter:

Had an older desktop that kept overheating, so I just chucked the case, hung it on some wire shelving and it works like a charm. The next step is to get an adaptor for the laptop screen so that the whole thing is self contained and will only have the power cord hanging off of it. This was just a trial run and I may find a better way to hang everything, other than zipties. Ont eh other hand, it's a superior kludge this way, I just need to incorporate some duct tape...

I know this site's tagline is "white trash repairs" but I tend to stay away from those words. But when you have a photo including Bud Light, Busch Light, a Wild Turkey poster and are browsing a fishing website... you're not exactly doing yourself any favors.
