    OMG TY SO MUCH NORTON!! How many times have I powercycled my modem/gateway and lost the powercord, banging my head trying to find it and cursing out my ISP as a result!!! :laugh:

    LOL, Nice work Popswala...I was going to say something but T beat me to it. I'm glad he stirred up your OCD because I was in shock to see all those wires too!:p

    This is my main desk. Its in storage in one city as I live in a diff city. Its to big to move and I only grabbed what I needed. I got my current desk of craigs so my pc wasn't on a tote and boxes lol. My old ones big enough for 2-3 screens. It has a cable management box on back side so no wires on floor as my bunny likes to chill next to me lol.

    I'm sorry your message is encrypted and we don't have that kind of technology here. Can you post your PC at this moment?

    Pics please.

    Even if it's just a cat or kitten....kitten even better.

    Hi! I'm from the Internet
    They are Cheiftec Dragons. The left one I bought around 2001 or so and the other one I bought back in 06 or so. I actually bough six of the one on the right around 06'. I still have 5 in the closet still in the boxes. 2 more blue ones and 3 Yellow ones. I also have a green one I bought when I bought the first blue one. It houses the 940be x4 system.

    Getting there. I wish I could have shown you the cable management I just did on the CFO's desk when I moved him.

    My trick is using the black twisty wire ties we get off the network cables we buy. We stash them away until we need them, then break out 10-15 on one person's desk. Bundle all the cables neatly as they pass through the hole in the monitor, then over the back of the PC. Take all the wires from the back of the PC and do the same thing, Whenever you bundle the cables, keep them straight: don't let them twist of wind around eachother and you get nice straight lines. Take the wad of cables and use a big velcro strap to bundle them all up. We usually mount the surge protectors under the desk top or along the wall right under the desk, so the only cables coming down are the network and one power cable for the surge protector. If you have a standard desk with a modesty panel (ie: upskirt shot preventor) we try to move the desk along the wall, then drop a nicely bundled set of cables over the side to hide it.

    I never use zip ties to bundle wires, though. I know if I did, someone is going to come back the next day and say they want something moved 6 inches over to the left or whatever, and there's not enough slack in any of the c ables, so all of the zip ties would have to be cut. That's why we use the twisty wire ties, so they can be undone and redone easily.

    I've been doing these moves for about 2-3 years now, and I'm getting pretty damn good at hiding cables. :pimp:


    For you, I'd recommend t strapping some of the wires to the fram to heal conceal them ;)

    Thats basically what I did T. I got those velcro straps and bundled the cables to the nearest part of the frame. My other desk has the surge mounted underneath and a cable management box on back side. It was a lil tricky trying to do it with this desk as its all open. I thought about those cable wraps but I didn't want one big black snake lookin there layin around. So I went this route. I think it looks somewhat better. Theres still a few wires around but Not enough slack in them to strap them somewhere hidden.

    To bad I don't live by Chi town anymore. I'd have you come by and do my wires for me. lol
