    Knackered Server

    Hi everyone, bought an old p200 to use as a simple static web server

    Anyway i want to make it look as old and broke as possible (not the insides tho!)(yes i am mad), just for an authentic hackers look.

    Anyone got any pics of old servers or any ideas?

    1)scratch the big "dell", "packard bell" or "compaq" sign on the front
    2)whip your keys against the box a few times to get scratched up a bit
    3) have a bunch of wires sticking out an open bay (just get any old wires)
    4)try to get a bigggg switch on the front so it looks like a power consuming demon.
    and thats only the outside
    (im not responable for any harm done to your computer and these methods go completly untested, just ideas)

    I have a copy of that and it's obviously staged to me. You can see the terminal (not a computer) isn't hooked up to power or any network.

    Hi,
    I'd suggest not to use a case at all... Let the power block, motherboard and the rest be dislocated all around the room...
    And put as many unneded wires as You can everywhere - You'll create a Web If You have some not working motherboards and other scrap and simulate electrical links between all this stuff, every computer engeneer will have nightamares after seeing all this
