Hehe all I mean really is that since it's half-empty (no cd drives, no
hard disks etc) it doesn't make sense taking up a full depth U of
rackspace - I'm building some proper boxes that are much less deep, only
about 300mm, so I can get other stuff behind them in the rack.

Hope that explains it!

Dan
