After installation of the most recent rack of cluster servers at work, the high-performance team left a box of “trash” sitting around. Mel from Operations thought I might be interested and brought it to me, and he guessed right.
The box had all the usual detritus from the installation of new computers — manuals that I put in recycling instead of the landfill, warranty cards, used twist ties . . . and this:
Lots of plastic baggies containing things looking vaguely interesting.
Opened and sorted, I have:
23 LED remote indicator assemblies with bicolor orange/blue LEDs at one end of 4′ cables and barrel connectors at the other,
Lots of plastic guides to clip into the corner of a cable management piece and hold a cable in position, complete with installation instructions!,
A pair of rackmount ears that I can modify to fit my refurbished 1U rackmount APC UPS, a very nice set of rubber feet that I think will replace the missing originals on my secondhand Akai Headrush delay/looping pedal, and a bunch of M5 machine screws for rack rails I don’t have.
Not bad for free.
