Data Center Chess Set! This is Awesome!

So this probably makes me an official geek, but i’m okay with that! 🙂 I was on a data center tour last week and there was this chess set sitting in the lobby and well….I just had to have it! Not only does my career revolve around data centers but so do my characters Kip and Gary. So I found the last one on ebay and it arrived today. They have little computers as the pawns and the rest of the pieces are servers and storage. The only thing that would have made this set complete is if they made the board’s squares little perforated floor tiles 🙂  I just wish they sold these things normally. I could think of a couple people that would think it’s as cool as I do.

    Nice chess! 🙂 However, what about cabling? Is the height of raised floor high enough? And where are HVAC machines?

    Really nice gadget from Symantec. BTW. Have you tried to build data center with Lego? This is really fun! Here is my inspiration:
