    For anyone else like me that hasn't wired in a kill switch, I've grabbed a few remote control power outlets to solve the problem. If things go wrong I can now kill power without having to move my lazy arse, and all wireless.

    These are the ones I picked up locally , http://www.bunnings.com.au/arlec-remote-control-power-outlet-3-pack_p4331240

    Be careful, big DC power supplies will keep supplying power for some time after they are disconnected from the mains. Depending on the failure, this may, or may not be a issue.

    The PSU's aren't an issue anymore, @SeatTime , that was a few years ago. I ended up using the server PSU's for other duties, non-sim related.
