i bought a used Dell PowerEdge 2950, and i have some plans for it. it didn't come with much storage (6x 36GB drives, in RAID 5 config, 4 in use, 2 as hot spares, about 100GB usable), but i think i can use it as is.
 the rack ears got bent (one broken) in shipping (thanks FedEx!), but it still runs, after i re-seated some internal hardware.
i am not yet sure what i will use it for, as plans changed a bit after i received it.

The PE2950 is now my VoIP server. So far it seems to be working good, after I figured out a few issues. Other than the rack ears, I am pleased with the server.

re-seated the memory, and CPUs, blew a little dust out, and all is fine now.  :nerd:
