But with 1and1, you don't have to ask for pictures. Just open any tech magazine (most of which now seem to be "brought to you by 1and1"), find their 5-10 page advertisement, and take a look at your wonderful servers there.
Heh, so you could ask for a reboot and watch the person going there to reboot your machine and waving at you on the cam?
I, personally don't care much about seeing where my server is, as soon as it is working like now. But, it wouldn't be too bad if I had a photo of my VPS, signed by the technician who takes care of it. So, I could hang it to my wall and say "Yea, he is the man"
