Well, I’ve finally managed to assemble the dream – a proper work space for working on servers, workstations, laptops and the like. It’s been years since I’ve been in a position to put something together, but a few weeks ago I managed to finalize the installation.
Aside from the home handyman capabilities this set up allows, the integrated LCD monitor, 5-port gigabit switch, waterproof keyboard and wireless mouse set under a twin pair of halogen lights gives me a place to bring equipment for full analysis and tinkering.
That is… assuming it‘s not freezing in the garage – the room isn’t insulated (yet) so there’s still that barrier to entry. Have you got a similar work space?
