"I'm married to a computer techie network administrator, and while I love him dearly, I don't love the computers everywhere," Kristi writes on her blog. "But because he's a network administrator, we absolutely have to have a computer network at home, which means we have to have a place for the network server."
The Linauers previous solution was to have everything stacked on a desk, but when they moved Kristi had enough. She was intent on coming up with a more visually pleasing way to store and organize all her hubby's geekery. With a new condo full of discarded furniture the previous tenants had left, she decided to see if anything could be hacked. "Our permanent solution needed to be able to hold the TV (which also doubles as the monitor for our network server), a keyboard, mouse, speakers, and of course, the CPU with the side off and its innards exposed...grrrrr!" Now that's some geeky shit even we would have a hard time dealing with.
