Security, both physical and systems, is of utmost
importance. The couch
might seem a perfect place to rack mount your equipment however it is by
means secure. I would recommend mounting the switch
and any other
in a lockable cabinet, such as the oven (true geeks
don't cook) and
cable through a duct drilled through the back of it.
electronic locking systems can be bolted to the hinged door and
installed throughout the kitchen. And the warmer
drawer makes an ideal
place to store a change notebook, extra patch leads, etc.
Oh! I almost forgot. After you've mounted your switch/router/firewall etc in
your oven cum 19" rack, you can take advantage of the convenient Window Kit
already installed. As well as being able to look in and watch the Pretty
Blinking Lights(tm) at your convenience, you could install a neon light
stick (such as http://www.thinkgeek.com/stuff/fun-stuff/3738.shtml
) and wire
it up to the oven's light switch! Other enhancements; lining the inside of
the oven with black speaker box carpet and buying a small tubular lava lamp
and strategically place it for maximum effect. :-)
BTW: What the hell's this?
Reckon it might end up on our shores in about 5 years time?
