Giving A New Meaning To "Wine Geek"

I'm STILL laughing about this. I've never seen a more perfect synergy of tech geek and wine snob than this rack-mounted wine rack (that doesn't really roll off the tongue now, does it?) that appeared this morning in Gizmodo. It's totally impractical unless you have one of those huge refrigerated server rooms. Otherwise the idea of storing your wine between heat belching computers is laughable, and just the type of thing that an engineer would come up with at 4:30 AM after 20 cups of coffee. You gotta check it out.

Hrm... I do have a gap in my rack. And the heat generated from the amps and other gear should do nothing but enhance the wine. I'm sold!
