The rack is already full; I only get that 1U of space by removing a spare
part to another location, and unfortunately, I have a depth limit due to
the power distribution module on the rack rear. These computers are
replacing tower PCs that sit on the floor under a desk in a rather hostile
environment, so I'd like to move them to either the desktop or the adjacent
rack, but have limited space in either location (1U of short-depth rack or
about room for a miniITX box on the desk).
