I Can Make a Mess!

I decided to move my MacMini so that I could use it (and the external drive where all my media resides) as a media machine. It was just sitting in my bedroom gathering dust.

I was getting sick of the lag time on my wireless setup so I decided to wire everything I could on my network. So I changed out all the cabling (ethernet) to try and reduce the spaghetti behind my audio bench with shorter (3 foot) cables. Ran a long cable to the bedroom where I added another switch to connect my printer and an Apple TV unit to the network as well.

I made some serious mess here today. Got everything put back together, hooked up and tested. I’ll need to do some cord management over the next few days, but every thing works. *grins*


Sleep has been sort of an elusive thing for me lately. I think I need to cut back on my caffeine intake and start heading to bed a little earlier than I have been lately. Schedule is kinda screwed over at the moment.

And maybe get some exercise and sunshine in there!

Does everything work faster now that you have changed it? Good luck organising the 'spaghetti' :)

I agree.

And yes things do go a little faster.

Except for the laptop, phone and iPad. none of which are wired.

Oh yeah and my wII, which CANNOT be wired. WiFi only. Bleah.

Smart man, getting things wired. I wire as much as I can here. I'm probably old fashioned, but I like wiring my internet and other stuff.

Do you get out and have walks and things like that regularly? As kabuldur already said, that and some light on your skin are important things!

Agreed I do need tro spend more time outside.

And I've wired everything I can.

AAAuuuuggghhh... the Cable Spaghetti Monster That Ate Texas T's! CSMs drive me insane.

I've slept better the last few nights as there's been no snoring (heh) and it's been just the right temperature to have the windows open overnight. That is blissful.

For now I've shoved the AV bench agin the wall to hide it all.
