Re: Actually
I too can take from this one, lots of old old hardware laying around. Why store this stuff (or heaven forbid throw it out) when it will make some cool furniture!

nasimson, 

If the fridge stopped working I think it's a pretty good idea to use it for storaging stuff. It's not that the shoes were sharing the space with any food. :D

Apparently old servers cant get sold on Craigslist, but old furniture does! So much for the value of the end-of-life IT equipment.
