With a wife-mandated “clean up your damned room full of junk” I’m on a monthlong quest to determine what stays and what goes. I decided to tackle my “box o cables” last night. It turns out that 10 years of buying, building, testing, and reviewing consumer electronics devices leaves one with a “few” extra cables…
I think we counted almost two dozen sets of RCA cables and at least 10 Ethernet cables in the batch, not to mention speaker wire, mini-USB cables, 2 200′ length Ethernets, a dozen coaxial, and a fun batch of proprietary ones (my favorite was the power adapter with a serial cable attachment – I have no clue what it was for).
I’ll be giving some excess ones away at Geek Dinner tonight. Jealous? Thought so.
Thanks again for arranging and inviting me for Geek Dinner last night.
On “power adapter with a serial cable attachment”, that sounds like the Palm V cable for the docking station.
Yep, I still have my Palm.
