The best(worst) I ever managed was to put a Sun 3/280 (I admit with the
PS and disks removed) into the top of a 6' cabinet by myself.  (And it
was a stupid old DEC cabinet that needed those silly little clip-on rail
nuts, which of course meant every time I lifted the thing into place and
bumped one of them it slid off to the wrong spot.  I HATE clip-on rail
nuts, round, square, or otherwise (though at least the square ones can't
be slid out of place).  Why can't everyone just use pre-tapped EIA rails?!?!?!?)

So, (I just gotta ask), how'd the titanium rod break?
