Cable management

or…  this was a fun diversion.

I’ve spent several hours working to build a clean demarcation point for my video and data network.  While this wasn’t how I originally intended it to look, it is a far cry from what it was when we moved in.

As of right now, we’re sitting at 7 video outlets and 11 data jacks.  Plus one cable run for the modem.  In time, I would like to run a few more data and video lines to walls that are currently lacking.  That will wait for a day when I have a ladder.  😛

Hardware involved:

In the future, I’d like to replace the 5-port switch with an 8+ model, move the Airport Extreme and make it a wireless access point/bridge only and add this board as a firewall/low-end server.
