They colo host many things. The definition of mid-TOWER is a nice
definition.  From the FAQ http://www.waveform.net/colo/colo-faq.php

        Q: What size tower server may be colocated at your facility?
        A: Our shelving is set to allow a typical mid-tower case no
        larger than 22" high x 9" wide x 20" deep

BTW, they have a MAC Mini, a Laptop and other stuff in the facility that
qualifies as a "Mid Tower"... kind of amazing what can be considered a
