Off the top of my head
Authored by: Eliard on Mar 18, '04 05:23:40PM

Not at my home office now, so this calculation is off the top of my head

11 Power Supply Cables
14 Cables connecting peripherals to the Mac
7 Cables interconnecting between peripherals
--
32 Cables

I have them all bundled and strapped together with those velcro thingies, fished through the cable holes in my desk, but somehow, everything still looks very messy.

I get a real laugh at the design shows when they redo the home office. A really cute little desk in the center of the room with the CPU tucked in a cabinet underneath, the keyboard in a drawer and the monitor front and center, but nothing is connected, there's no printer, no scanner, no modem, and no space to actually work without getting a severe case of RSI because there isn't enough space for the wrists and arms to rest naturally.

At least I've disconnected and packed up the stereo system. iTunes and a really good set of speakers goes a long way in reducing the number of remotes (one each for the receiver, CD player, CD recorder). Relieves some of the clutter.
