Cable clutter solved
[thumb:7956 left hspace=5 vspace=5] The other day I complained about cable clutter at work. We have a Working Place Evaluation at work and I thought I might mention all the cables lying around my seat. The next monday when I arrived at work, I was amazed to see all the cables nicely ordered together with Velcro. Cool!
I had seen Velcro before, but always on clothes. Everywhere I've seen it, there was a "male"-velcro, and a "female"-velcro. This new (for me) Velcro had the male- and female-velcro on the same band - one on each side. This is terrific for cables.
I've used "strips" before, but if you have to move the cables around e.g. taking your computer to a LAN party, you have to cut all the "strips" over, and replace with new ones afterwards. This double-sided Velco is amazing as you can refactor your cable arrangement when needed.
This tip might sound simple, but I saved the world for me.
To nearby friends and colleagues: I've bought 25 m which is 15,- DKK/m. If you order for yourself you'll have to pay 34,- DKK/m. Feel free to stop by for a meter or two.
