It was only one server, and believe it or not, it's ready. (Well, 
almost, one of the drives in one of the equallogics is bad. I have a 
replacement coming.)

Do we still want it? Personally I don't think we can have enough jenkins 
slaves, along with with getting off Rackspace, or at least under our $$$ 
allotment. Is there room for it in the rack the above equipment is 
intended to go in?

If you don't remember, it's a Dell R515 w/ 32G RAM, ~3TB in the PERC, 
and 16TB raw in a pair of Equallogic 6010s. (~11TB in RAID6.) Total 8U.

I wanted it to run slaves on, so it needs external/public connectivity.

I'm half tempted to drive it down to RDU myself and hold people's hands 
(twist their arms) to get it, and the above, installed pronto.
