    not small one like that and when dried like that they dont smell at all (oh well not the noticeable rotten usual scent) its not rotten its dried.

    but indeed when rotten they smell like any rotten creature (or human) :D

    Electrical contractors tore out old CAt5 when they demoed areas and then ran new CAT6 from remodel areas back to the existing network closet. Then they had to move the patch panels around in the switches. This is what we were left with:

    Yes, that orange cable you see is fiber, and in one place it's completely looped around two of the CAT6 cables. I was pissed when I saw that. :mad:

    A nightmare in blue . . .and yellow, and orange -- and the blending of the cables makes me think I'm seeing green sometimes.

    Label all the cables, take the closet down after hours and rewire it should be a few hours at least. I think I do it fairly quickly.

    Holy crap! I worked at Microsoft for the last year doing lab technician stuff, and was taught to cable things the completely opposite way.

    That looks like Des.das.dude's PC

    I forgot to mention that this pic was after I had to separate some of the patch panels to put in cable management that they forgot to :rolleyes:

    I still haven't had the time to clean that up. Kinda hard to when you have six people doing the work of ten :banghead:

    Damn, some of the pics here are just......"shudders", and Sir B. where do you find those pics:eek:

    I've encountered some nasty PC's but most weren't as bad as some here.
    Currently at work so I'll update post after I return home and dig through the files (just switched to and SSD so new windows and I think most related files were on previous HDD T-T)
