The danger of growing too fast

Out esteemed director has pushed us too far too long - he requires us to rack 'em and stack 'em all day long, and after the last spree of installing alpha hardware he got from engineering (the new 4 way, 16-core Rock based systems, code name lurad) for the www.sun.com cluster we now have such a big mess in our server room that I thought I'd share it with you:

We have added 72 of these little monsters since the beginning of last week and haven't had time to clean up the cables - so now it is time to bring out the dymo and start labeling...

Wait!

You guys get to rack, cable, and install systems on your own?

I'm envious like you wouldn't believe. I miss those days!!!
