RE: DATACENTER: transport optical vs. cabinet?

What's always a big argument against this is dust. I don't put ANYTHING on
the floor, that's what racks are for. The only thing that should be near the
floor are the UPS's with nice fat bullet-proof connectors and hardware.
Also, it's amazing what size 9 climbing shoes (or rack carts, or
hand-trucks) will do to a patch cord connector.

Hopefully, the idiot that kicks a 240VAC power cord does so hard enough that
they catch the 240VAC through their big toe <grin>.
