KE5JRO.NET Computers Page

Hello all.
I have decided to make a place to show my computers.
They are not the fastest/hottest/best by any means, but they are mine.
I have had a few people interested in them, so here is most of my pc's, with a description, and what pictures I could find.
Click on pictures for a larger version.

** UPDATE 23 Sept 2015 **
Deciding NOT to spend $1000+ on a 'real' server rack, I build one.
It is complete, and my networking equipment has been relocated to the new rack, and back online.

The MB (Make/Model for rack equipment) links to a gallery for that equipment, where applicable.

PC's with a red * are running BOINC in their spare time.
