LifeHacker to the rescue

Earlier this week I had to tear apart the office and next week it gets put back together. The nightmare of doing this is moving some extremely heavy furniture around, and dealing with the miles of electric cords and network wires. The wires have always been a pain to me (I know, its hardware {g}) no matter how careful I try to be when I connect it all to the power source. A very timely post on LifeHacker is going to save me some of the aggravation this time around.

Today I am going to go get some of the foam pipe insulation which I think is brilliant, and I ordered some of the ID Pilot Identification Labels. I am also going to get some tie wraps for the server closet in the basement. When I built the server closet I put peg board on the inside walls to allow for better circulation, but thanks to this inspirational post I now can attach the DSL modem and switches to save on shelf space.

    Here’s a small tip that’s helped me in storing all of my extra cables, power bricks, and other things that tangle: zip lock bags. I used to have a drawer full of cables that were a tangled mess. I put the small ones in zip lock backs. I can see right through them to see what’s inside when I need a telephone cord, cat-5 cable or whatever. For bigger items like an old router, I’ll put that in a plastic grocery bag, with carger, and tie that. Keeps them together, and keeps it from tangling other hardware. Into the drawer it goes.

    Good luck!

    Definitely what I do for the extra cable mess in the drawers, but I am talking about solving the cable mess behind the desk.
