A Ridiculous Amount of Cables

I have a ridiculous amount of cables in my home office due to two computers. But I have managed them pretty well, yes? (See photo.)

I love zip ties.

Number of Cables

  1. power cable to workstation
  2. power cable to DSL modem
  3. ethernet cable
  4. power cable to laser printer
  5. usb cable to laser printer
  6. usb cable to scanner
  7. power cable to touchscreen monitor
  8. usb cable to videocam
  9. usb cable to touchscreen monitor from desktop workstation
  10. DVI cable to touchscreen monitor from desktop workstation
  11. VGA cable to touchscreen monitor from laptop workstation
  12. PS/2 cable to mouse from desktop workstation
  13. usb cable to keyboard from desktop workstation
  14. usb cable to mouse from laptop workstation
  15. power cable to laptop workstation
  16. auxiliary usb cable for impromptu usb device (card reader, thumbdrive, phone; cycle computer)
  17. power cable to desk fan

An all-in-one computer could probably reduce the amount of cables above by half…

Using strategic routing and about a dozen zip ties, I think I have my cable situation under control.
