Real-world server room nightmares

1st Place: Server Room Nightmare Challenge

Do you think your server room is a mess? Check out these pictures and see if you still think so. Bill Detwiler asked TR members to submit their photos of nightmare server rooms they've encountered. TechRepublic editors picked our top three, but it was hard!

TR member Luca claims the glory with this lovely scene. (Go to Image 46 to view his set.)
