Friday Funny: Bats Under the Raised Floor

 – I knew we should’ve gone with overhead cooling!

Here’s the cartoon for this month’s Data Center Knowledge caption contest.

This is how it works: Diane Alber, the Arizona artist who created Kip and Gary, creates a cartoon, and we challenge our readers to submit the funniest, most clever caption they think will be a fit. Then we ask our readers to vote for the best submission and the winner receives a signed print of the cartoon. Submit your caption for the cartoon above in the comments.

Congratulations to Dan, whose caption won the Groundbreaking edition of the contest. His caption was: “So the goal is to have this site up in two months… What do you think?”

Some good submissions came in for last month’s Open Plan edition – all we need now is a winner. Help us out by submitting your vote below!

    Free airside economizer cooling from underground caverns *seems* like a good idea on the whiteboard, but in reality, there are problems...
