some collection of "these"


problem with +12v or -48v dc inputs is you need to provide
enough current to these "dc power supply"
	- at 12v .. we were calculating about 400A ...
	since we estimate 4A per mb and 100 mb per rack
	and double it or 50% for keeping the powersupply
	reasonably within its normal lifespan ( mtbf )

fun stuff...
