7-8 cables for power alone!
Authored by: g3ski on Mar 16, '04 11:29:23AM

The post did say, "my setup", so that implies how many cables do I need to have all of my stuff going and connected. Too many! I only have 1 power outlet in the room of this apartment, so I have 2 UPSes and 5 or 6 extension cords just to get power to the computer equip! :-)

I too just spent over an hour organizing and staightening out the cable mess. I am a bit of a neat freak, and these cables had been bugging me for months. From where I am sitting it looks nice and clean, but dip your head under/behind the desk and it's a crazy maze of wires and cables.

Anyone remember the old iMac advert where the PC had the mess of cables behind it and the iMac had the power cable only? Wait until that iMac user starts to add peripherals, it will be a mess too....good ad tho.
