  • 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!

    We've put the winners at the top, but see them in their proper sets, which follow, with more detail and explanation on just what you're seeing -- and in some cases, not seeing.

    TR member Luca claims the glory with this lovely scene. (Go to Image 46 to view his set.)
  • It was a photo-finish with this horrendous hanging garden of cables and equipment from TR member Handyman. (Go to Image 51 for the set.)

  • Handyman? Anyone think that this name doesn't fit this guy? Me thinks no,

    there isn't really that much in this topology at all, or is there more that isn't visible? Certainly, if this is all that is there then this guy has the totally opposite Name
