Comment A closet behind it (Score 1) 402

I have a friend whos house has two rather nice entertainment systems in his basement. They are both managed from the same central location where a shelving unit, which would be similar to a rack mount is accessible from a door that swings out and faces the main area. Then in order to get behind the shelves easier they put a closest on the back side so that theres more storage space and the rear of the shelves are accessible.

Computers are unreliable, but humans are even more unreliable. Any system which depends on human reliability is unreliable. -- Gilb
