JUST SPENT AN HOUR hunting down the USB to mini-USB cable that allows me to power up my iPad bluetooth case/keyboard from Targus. Found many, many cables tucked in various containers and boxes. Quite the gamut, RCA phono plugs, ethernet, various proprietary digital camera cables, etc. Sigh, I only now and then label my cables.
So be it resolved, a cold rainy day project for me is to go through the mounds of old cables and connectors and ditch the paleo-IT stuff.
Organization is the close cousin of procrastination, I will do it, eventually. When I grow up I want to be highly organized.
