Leak threatens server room
TechRepublic members share photos of their wiring closets, server racks, and network operations centers.
"Oh, how I wish this were a joke photo, but it is actually is our server room," one TechRepublic member wrote. "We recently installed the leak diverter kit after the first rain of this year found its way to a sweet spot directly over the servers' keyboard. I'm hoping to win a little notoriety from Tech Republic to help me persuade the bosses that this equipment, which runs our whole business, needs to be relocated or significantly better protected!"
