POWER!

Lots of power outlets on several circuits. Probably double what you think
you need.  At this stage, outlets and circuits are very inexpensive.  I
wouldn't even think of putting normal outlets in...use four plex's. And then
probably one of those every 4 feet or so.

I'd probably also have a power outlet on it's own circuit right under the
window depending on what part of the country you live in.  Why?  Because
with all of that equipment, you'll be generating a lot of heat...and
upstairs is always hotter than down anyway.  So there is a decent chance
you'll end up putting in a supplemental air conditioner in.

Sounds excessive, but when did you last have to many power outlets??

I'd also have at least 2 cable & phone jacks on opposite sides of the room.
Just to give you flexibility. 

Basically, wire it as if it was an office....NOT a residence.

Subject: [PCTECH] Home office design

Technically, this doesn't have to do with AS/400, iSeries, i5, or pc's.
My
wife and I are in the process of designing a house, where I'll have a home
office.  The office space will be above a 3 car garage and house my AS/400
and at least 3 pc's.

I would appreciate good suggestions about home offices, good websites that
will help with layout, or anything ideas you wish you'd done in your SOHO.
Thanks.
