The 19 racks had some cluster equipment in them.  lots of power equipment.
Got some decent gigabit switches out of it.   All not bad for 250 bucks
total and a 7 hour drive.

The racks im repurposing for around the house. Shelving in the shop,
 Turns out they are great for a kitchen storage.  Gotta think outside the
box for using them lol.  But at the price they were i couldnt refuse.

Im excited to get them together.  I thought of just deracking the SGIs to
make them easier to work with then eventually reassemble once i get them
fully operational.
