  1. As I get more involved with my testing, the more I want to build a proper, dedicated test lab at home to play with. Nothing too much, maybe a couple of servers and some network kit. Looking around, I can get 2nd-hand rack-mountable servers relatively cheaply... However, my question isn't about how to set it up, or what to install, but rather: Where can I keep it without making my family want to kill me? The only space that I could really use is the garage - the servers would be just too noisy (not to mention blowing hot air) - and putting them under the stairs would just cause Mrs FM and Bambino FM to disown me and kick me out the family home! I have nothing against using the garage (in principle), but I'm worried about dust (in general), temperature and moisture (condensing tumble dryer in there) killing the kit. Figure I can give the place a thorough clean, paint the floor, seal any small holes easily enough, but I'd prefer beyond the initial outlay on equipment, to keep this as low-cost as possible. Has anybody got any useful tips on: Protecting delicate equipment in potential hostile environments? Server hardware that is perhaps nice & cool/quiet, without breaking the bank (bearing in mind that I can get hold of a dual-xeon HP Proliant DL360 with 6Gb RAM for around £90)? Social engineering techniques to convince the family that a comms rack in the spare room is a brilliant idea? Thanks in advance!
