Now that the Inner Drive Technology International Data Center (IDTIDC) has gone away,
my apartment the IDT World Headquarters has a few more options. It's not a huge space, which has become a problem now that I'm trying to sell it.
Essentially, I'm rotating three rooms clockwise. That is, my office is moving to where my dining room is, which is moving into my living room, which is moving into my office.
That this is possible suggests the difficulties of having a server rack in the spot most people would ordinarily put a TV. I needed to put the rack next to an outlet I could isolate on a 30-amp circuit, right next to the main phone jack. That forced the TV, and therefore the living room, into the area most of my neighbors use for their dining rooms. So that forced the dining room into the are most of my neighbors put their desks.
I'll have the full "before" and "after" photos when I've moved all the furniture. (I may actually put some pieces in storage, because no amount of rearranging can reduce the volume of stuff in the place.)
Here's the "after," showing the true victim of all this disruption:
I looked through my old photos just now—yay indexing—and this is the closest analogue I could find:
(That's from March 2009, when I reinstalled windows at the office.)
The project should be complete in time for the game tonight.
