Hi Eric,

As much as I wonder how "something that looks nice" could be added to 
the wishlist for a rackmount server, here's my two cents.

I've been using Chieftec's 1U cases for a while now. I'm sure there are 
better cases around, but, in comparison to one el cheapo Mapower I laid 
my hands on last year, they're rugged and offer great (exceptional?) 
value for money. I'd buy a Chieftec 2U without blinking.

Also, due to pretty low costs, you could have a spare around.

> Also, a good UPS rack mount?

Sorry, can't help you there, other than that I've heard one UPS 
professional mutter that APC's offerings are 'pieces of sh*t'.

HTH and good luck... Nico
