Computer Tips - How can I get all my messy cables under control?
Date: 2008mar5 Updated: 2008nov15 Q. How can I get all my messy cables under control? A. First, remove cables that are not in use. If a cable is not in use now but may be used in the future still remove it. Designate a box (or something) for such cables. In my office I have a power "bus". Since nearly every device needs power I placed power bars a even intervals under the desk. They are attached (with cable ties) to the underside of the desk. Then its a short run from nearly every device to a plug. I then use cable ties to shorten the device power cables. You can buy a 1 foot crossover ethernet cable for connecting your DSL/cable modem to you router. More good tips: http://lifehacker.com/364054/top-10-ways-to-get-cables-under-control
