+ - Setting up a system integration room at VAR

Submitted by o2binbuzios
o2binbuzios (612965) writes "Due to an office move, I have a chance to do a clean-sheet design for an integration room at a fairly large VAR ($100M+ ). I'm looking for some ideas or best practice to support 100-120 square meters (~50 x 30 ft).

I'm particularly interested in ideas around efficient workflow, ways to manage cabling and electrical, and 'environmental' solutions that make it a pleasant place to work. There will be a central bench with 6-8 stations (3-4 per side) with engineers and techs who may be configuring stacks of up to 10 devices at a time that could range from servers, to network elements, to SAN & NAS devices and more.

I've been looking for a paper that seems like it must exist — but I'm happy to gather good ideas one at a time or in bunches here on /."

+ - Sci-Fi Books for Pre-Teens? 4

o2binbuzios (612965) writes "I have two pre-teen boys who are avid readers, and I am going through my mental register for GREAT Sci-Fi & Fantasy books for them. What are some of the classics (and maybe new additions to the classics) that would be great for them to read? I am asking because some of the 'straight-up' classics I remember actually seem kind of dark & cynical for younger readers. Starship Troopers and some of the other Heinlein are definitely darker and more political than I remember...Foundation Trilogy and psycho-history maybe too dry.. Road-trip reading season is upon us — what are the good reads for the kids in the back seat?"

You are in the hall of the mountain king.
