    Them's some expensive switches! Don't remind me that I have to roll out VOIP for 2500 by year's end!

    I had a fun load today... :) Two heavy kegs of organic beer :)

    It was driving fine, you could feel the load but it was obvious the car could handle it :D

    Is this image scaling strangely for anyone else? Anyone know why? It looks fine when I click on it...ok now it's fine....ok let's just go with it.

    Depends entirely on how you aggregate it ;) Uplinked, 4gbps/switch max. Stacked, 32gbps between 9 switches at 5 stacks. Each port is only good for 100mbps.

    Gross, 216 Gbps (48 user ports/switch*45*100).

    Would be an interesting idea to try to actually power these up and connect them out of a Prius though (mobile IDF). Could I get an inverter powerful enough, considering fully loaded, these run at 489W each fully loaded? :D 22,000 watts is probably the MAX we could draw off of the traction battery. :( That doesn't consider the A/C load to help dissipate 400+BTU/hr per switch.

    Maybe I'll stick to lumber ;)

    When the # in my trunk is a "drop in the bucket" for my company and Cisco, they're not as expensive. Also, use caution, this flavor can only deliver 370w of PoE power, which is 24 ports at a time at full 15.4w/port, not all 48. If your devices can request less power, you may get more.

    Lowe's had a sale on bags of mulch, and I got 20 bags with my pickup. The next day the sale was still on but I didn't have my truck.

    I could "only" get 16 bags into the Prius. Got 55 mpg on the way home.

    On a recent trip to Florida: Two adults (passenger could recline to sleep). Two large suitcases, two sets of golf clubs, two golf carts, one large cooler, one small cooler, two pillows, one computer bag and one knapsack.
    On a recent trip to the airport: three adults (one in the back on the "40" side), two large suitcases, two hard cases for golf clubs, two carry on bags.
    I wish I had photos.

    i've hauled 750 lbs of rock salt for my water softener in my hatch before, it fits perfectly the way the hatch is laid out with the notches by the wheel wells. got about 50 dash mpg's the whole trip home too.

    When I moved in to my new apartment, I only used my Prius to move all my stuffs. Well except for big furnitures and appliances. Prius is very convenient.

    OK...he's in there but he does not look happy about it. Now here's a real V test. Could he sit up in a V?

    2010Prius isn't and he's got a BIG DOG.

    Glad I don't pay his food food bill or carry a 10 gallon trash bag for poop pickup on walks.

    Still glad I got the Prius III instead of the V or C. Only wish on my list is PriusIII/IV for power seats.

    Stopped by Tractor Supply tonite and picked up a 150 gallon Rubbermaid Stock Tank.
    And a 50 gallon one is nested underneath.
    Got a bunch of looks from everyone in their suv's and pickup trucks at the store but I made it work. Na-na-na-na-na. :p :D

    For my new saltwater reef tank build, in case you were wondering. ;)

    Back to the OP and the photo of the lumber you've got right up to the dash. You may want to put a blanket in front to protect the dash in case of a sudden stop.
