I think the best moment at our household was when I had the 4/690MP
(full datacenter chassis/rack) delivered via freight.
Amy calls me at work. "I think you better come home for lunch."
I get home.
She's out in the garage, staring at it like the monolith from 2001.
"You told me it was the size of a fridge.. I thought you meant DORM FRIDGE."
The best part about that box (which sadly, came with no CPU boards, etc)
was actually DISMANTLING it - taking everything out of the rack, getting
a replacement caster wheel, etc. I wish I hadnt sold the chassis/rack.
