I like the rack mounted sawtooth! What is the other hardware in the rack? What are you using the setup for?

I have a brief explanation at, but I'll include here as well. Starting from the top, that's a Cisco AP (completely forgot the model number), the black enclosure is a Dell XPS 8700 I have setup as a media streaming server + steam in-home streaming for games. Red enclosure is my Untangle NG firewall box. Next is the Netgear smart switch. Then of course we have the sawtooth. That's a Marathon G-rack (quite the rarity!). It's running Mac OS 10.3 server, using it for AFP, FTP, LAN-email for my security system (notifications and whatnot), network login, netboot, QuakeWorld, ventrilo voice chat, and up until today my BBS running in the classic environment. I had to stop that service until my RAM upgrade gets here. It was taxing the system too much. Ah, yeah and it has an OWC legacy SSD. Below the sawtooth is a Mac Mini (1.86GHz Core 2 Duo model) that is my command and control for the IP video cameras. I'm using a fantastic bit of Mac-only software called SecuritySpy by BenSoftware.
