The computers-in-the-family-room situation is driving me nuts.
We currently have one desktop computer, one printer and one laptop sharing a six foot table with the networking gear (hub, dsl modem, wireless access point) and miscellaneous other computer junk (palm pilot hot sync thingie, digital camera cables, etc). This mess is all cabled together in what seems to be a completely connected graph. There are three surge protectors just for all the power points.
All the cable management solutions I’ve seen seem to assume that your cables all start at one place and all wind up at some other place so that you can neatly fit them inside a tube. My cables are all going every which a way, criss crossing each other. I have no idea how to get this mess under control.
