Good, I'm always afraid of dropping an Octane on my foot, I can't imagine how much a Challenge would hurt.

I heard Onyx fridges aren't so good, I guess it depends on the load you put it under?

Maybe 5/6 beers stacked at max. :lol:

Here's the full story: http://www.instructables.com/id/Convert ... /?ALLSTEPS

The system was dead and stripped of usable parts, and the "Challenge fridge" went to the CWI in Amsterdam (the first organization outside the USA to officially gain access to NSFnet, an academic computer network that later evolved into the global Internet).

I'd say that's a worthy final resting place for a dead server :)
