Yes, raised flooring is very obsolete ... and for those of us who
like building systems from cast off equipment like those extra tall
22" equipment racks, cable raceways and raised flooring equipment is
better than a trip to the flea market.
Consider that the raised floor concept was primarily designed for and
is useful in ducting cool air into the blade racks and passing all
the power cabling and distribution around, neatly and out of the way.

The fellow in Canada building a Beowulf from "found" parts should
search his immediate environs for any server farms in a "modernizing"
mode. In many cases these g'ment and commercial IT departments will
pay you to haul the stuff away ... check it out.
