Too many ...
Authored by: bedouin on Mar 20, '04 05:30:10PM

I voted 18-20, but I'm not sure if that's right. My Powermac alone has the following cables around it:

10 Power chords (monitor, firewire dvd rom, scanner, powermac, receiver, gamecube, firewire hard drive, printer, vcr, dv cam)

7 USB cables (keyboard, scanner, printer, mouse, joystick, USB > UPS backup, usb hub)

3 Firewire cables (hard drive, dvd rom, firewire cam)

5 video cables (coax running from my wall, to my vcr, and then to my AlchemyTV card; RCA cable connecting my gamecube to AlChemyTv card, 17" monitor vga cable, Apple Display cable)

6 audio cables (minijack > RCA cable running from my powermac to the receiver, minijack > RCA cable converting Gamecube's audio output to minijack, 2 speakers cables from my receiver, headphones, rca connector running from the receiver to other side of my room to connect an ibook, or anything else)

2 gamecube controllers, remote sensor cable from my AlChemyTV card

1 Ethernet cable . . . which eventually leads to my basement where there are MANY more cables attached to my servers :)

34 cables total! More can be added depending on what I'm doing . . . like when I connect my digital camera, or am dubbing video from (or to) my Firewire cam with the VCR.

I used to try and 'hide' my cables, but there's simply no point in trying. The best i could do is tie them together, but I connect and disconnect stuff so often that it's really impractical.

My iBook on the other hand, has nothing attached to it :)
