Help me..


Finally got all my periferals plugged into my computer today (i've literally not had the time since I moved offices). I both love and hate this photo. Love it because it's one of those nifty powercords that turns everything in my office off when I turn off my computer. Hate it because, well, just look at it! I also keep trapping cords in the wheels of my office chair. It's not a good situation. I wish there was a better way.

Sorry about the lack of good photos recently. I can't figure out how to download my pictures from my camera onto my new laptop (thanks old laptop for deciding to die one week into teaching....). I don't know why the program isn't working, but it's driving me crazy. This photo is from my phone.

Oh, and 2 days and counting. I'm eating my fill of pasta and potato chips right now.....

I have no easy answer for the unsightly cords--I have mine shoved behind my desk on one side of the room and some others stuffed into a basket on top of my work table. Neither is the perfect solution, but they are sort of out of sight.
Two days and counting--am sendind in carb thoughts. Good luck Rhian--and I hope your weather is perfect. I remain so impressed!

I think that's what bugs me, in my new office, the plugs are not in a spot I can hide anymore! Longing for the days where everything is wireless......

because of finn, we have the computer cords all plugged into a single strip behind that blue cart thingie mike made. those that do have to be exposed are wrapped in one of those plastic crod wrapping tubes. and not done at home (smack head), but i did do at work...as i plugged cords in, i labeled both ends. i.e. "printer cord" gets written on masking tape or a file label and wrapped around the printer cord at the end near the printer and the end near the strip. this way, when everything is plugged in, you don't have to try and follow your hand along a massive tangle from one end to other trying to figure out what is what!

Our IT guy used velcro wraps or cable ties to shorten the length of the too long ones and then ran them through a piece of split tubing (imagine a vacuum cleaner hose with a slit along one side). Cleaned up a the look a lot!!
