Good news everyone! CompSoc is now the proud owner of a hefty rack.
Vlad swiped this from MMU as they were getting rid of a whole pile of old rackmounted equipment. After successfully wheeling the 1960s(ish) rack up Oxford Road (much to my amusement and at the cost of everybody's hearing) we decided to take the escalator up to the Precint Centre. Bad idea... the escalator died the second we jumped on with the rack, which meant that we had to lug it up by hand. Not a fun job, especially as I ended up dragging it upwards while, thanks to Newton's apples, it pulled down in an attempt to chop of my fingers.
But, in the end, we prevailed... and proceeded to abuse the disabled chairlift to shift the thing from the CS building entrance to the lower ground where all of the cool CompSoc stuff is. A few more funny looks (especially from the sandwich seller kid) but also a good number of look of admiration, including from John Latham... although, I've no idea if he was just taking the piss or if he was genuinely interested.
If you're really interested you could head over to the CompSoc website and check out the images in the gallery.
