Old IBM 32U cabinet in the unfinished basement, half a dozen older IBM
x-series and NAS, Cisco 2950/3550, old terminal server, UPS (have to
upgrade), bix patch panel, etc.

Simple and cheap stuff I've managed to cobble together over the years.  A
lot mirroring the configuration (not the hardware) at work.

Eventual projects include building the room around it and tying the phone
into it all.

It's all for fun, really.
