    I hate to the guy who has to swap out a cable. Just saying :P

    • DuCake Jan 24, 2017 @ 14:44

      I’d hate to have to do anything at all with the cabling if it were not neat :-P

    #2 – I spy cardboard… Data Center 101 no go.

      It was used to keep the cables apart when installing and was surely removed when done.

    Those sharp 90 degree bends in home examples make cringe. RESPECT THE BEND RADIUS!

    #7 and #10 looks alien :-P

    zipties are teh debbil. I’d have my sidecutters out in very short order and strip all of that off.

    Pretty, yes, but so very hard to modifiy.

    Velcro FTW…

    The number Eleven is a PC cabling in a wall mount.

  • Battle Jan 24, 2017 @ 10:00

    I agree with Kurt, no zip ties. Every time you need to stick your hands and arms in to modify the setup for troubleshooting or additions after the initial install. I have scratches, scrapes, and even cuts to show for that effort thanks to zip ties. Velcro all the way.

  • Tommy Jan 24, 2017 @ 12:07

    We want Velcro. Let us make data center cabling great with Velcro again ;)

    Yes, pretty, but…
    On most images lack of additional a few centimeters if it was necessary to cut the cable or even to plug it into another socket. Number 12 – clearly wrong. The cables must be laid at an angle of 90 degrees. Try to find them later under the plaster when you want to drill a hole in the wall.
