> It was brought to my attention that some of the folks here may
not have ever seen good wiring, so I snapped a few photos of
good wiring here and wrote a quickie web page for the photos.
I couldn't get pictures of Ethernet wiring, but it's the same.
Except the last photo, it's all wax string done very neatly.
This is the goal.  ;-)

If you find any pictures of NY.NET; Terry Kennedy made the above
look sloppy. Many places ban cable ties due to the sharp ends;
some allow 'em if tensioned by a pistol-grip installer. Terry
required lacing cord. You can guess his heritage.

As for horror stories, a certain ISP near here that started out in
a video store had piles of Sportsters. The wall warts were lined
up and glued dead-bug style to a number of long 1x3's; then #14
copper was run down each side, daisy-chain soldered to each plug
blade. There was no attempt to insulate any of upright plugs...

I am SURE this is long gone, and the people there will likely deny
it was I would if it were me!
