Arrrrgh!!!! the cables are coming to get me!!!
Authored by: mmulhern on Mar 14, '04 03:42:49PM

That's it! I'm not moving house, I'm not even going to move my Mac to another room, or even other side of the computer room.

Just counting the devices connected to the QS-2x1G it's 32 cables + 2 power strips for 34 (my response to survey) then there is another 17 cables for the PC and printer connected to the network in the same room as the Mac (subtotal = 51).

Continuing along the network via the AEBS, My wife's iBook500 and desk bound stuff is another 7 cables and 1 power strip (subtotal = 59)

My lonely PB800 contibutes 2 cables, for a Grand Total of 61 cables for my home network.

And if we count the 2x802.11b to the laptops, 2 cameras, and 1 VCR deck that move on and off the network, that is another 10 cables and +1 power strip, for 72 max (unless of course I lost track of my counting somewhere?)

Thanks for the wake-up call, going to have to do something about that cable situation now.
