Re: Home computer rooms

I've got a Danby portable type dual hose unit which works very well
for my office.  The single hose units are really no good for getting a
room cool as they continually pull in outside air.  It's pretty quiet,
a lot quieter than the cheaper no-name unit it replaced.  12000BTU -
it does really need it's own 15A/120V circuit because of the size.

Mine sits in two racks in my second bedroom. Cooled by ambient AC.

I have an old pdp-8 rack (I didn't get the actual computer, just the
rack, but it does still have the DEC faceplate), and the room is cooled
by the regular central A/C.  I've considered dedicated A/C for this room
(just a small spare bedroom really), but I haven't found anything that
is economical and quiet.

I don't speak for anybody but myself - that's enough trouble.
