Never really thought about it I guess. I suppose that I could route it up the left side of the monitor but I really don't care. I have to move my stuff pretty frequently for cleaning anyways.

I didn't either and now that I have literally over 50 cables behind my desk it actually became physically difficult to add or remove something.

I guess for small computer setups it really doesn't matter though.

I would think that with all the cables tied/bundled together it would be even more troublesome..

Proper use of velcro ties to bundled helps prevent cables from getting tangled with proper routing it makes it way easier to add or move cables then when you have the octopus mess.

This was the case with zip ties and twist ties, which is why I don't use either anymore. I got 165 feet of double-sided velcro for about $35 online, and it's been lovely.

My desktop is probably not going to look impressive to anyone, especially considering some of the other desktops (Anaconda Rifle? Holy Cow man!), but at least I don't have all kinds of messy cables around like some of you:



The main thing is that my normal Desktop PC is in the shop right now due to a serious virus problem. So all I have is this laptop that I got from work. I think it might be a Mac? I've been having all sorts of problems with it lately.

What?

In a colocation facility, wiring room, server cabinet, office installation, etc, yes, cabling tidiness is important.

Home users need to plug things in and have them work. Yes there may be too many cables, but Christ stop with the insane ramblings about it.

I hope to replace the radio for something less ugly. Anyone know if there are speakers that get their sound from USB instead of the regular headphone jack. Because I'd like to plug it in to my USB hub so I only need one USB to access all desktop stuff.

I used to have a laptop so I could 'take it to uni' but in 3 years I took it out the house once. So I just got a desktop and admitted it wasn't going anywhere. Will post a pic of my too intricate set up later.

For the record, I don't care about cables, but many of the posted photos have visible thick layers of dust on everything. How you can let it progress to that state and not even care when taking a photo is beyond me.

Actually, it's not really a pain at all. I really DO seldom take it out of the house -- I got it for grad school, but now I don't really have a lot of need for a portable computer except for when I travel for work. So once every couple of months, I have to bend down and un-Velcro a couple of things. Hardly a big deal.

Use Paint.NET in the future. It's free, has features closer to Photoshop than MSPaint, and has an option to make JPEGs not look like poo poo (when you save the image, set the quality slider to 100 and viola, good looking JPEGs).

Or just use PNGs.
