Re: Humidity control

even 10 years ago data centers were generally just "rooms with computers",

I take it you've never been in a proper mainframe server room? 30 (ish) years ago I worked for a company that had several big 3090 units and *everything* was set up to keep them happy..

and i can remember being able to smoke whilst fixing issues with NT4 webservers

I'm glad I didn't work where you did. Smoking has been banned in every server room I've ever worked in.
