my garage

my time to shine.... and my wife said filling our garage with things like 5 still packaged parallel cables was idiotic.

what pin config would you prefer? straight 25 or ya need a 25c for a peripheral?

I'd guess it's beside the others.

I'm not putting a photo of my box of shame on the internet

Yeah, no. Mine are "contained" within a former sleeping bag slip case.

It was a bad pun on "parallel"

[-] jawa21@startrek.website 4 points 2 months ago

I'm sorry it needed explanation, but that is actually a brilliant pun!

In retrospect immediately after I posted this, I realized that I should have used an interrobang, I'm sorry‽

About four years ago, I sat down and organized all of my cables, then tied all the matching cables together with bongo ties/Velcro straps. A lot of it of course has become scattered again, but I am still reaping the benefits from having them all generally grouped together. It is worth the hour or two folks!
