Like many people, I just keep adding bits to my computer. And more and more bits of wire appear under the desk (which I do *try* to keep fairly tidy - on top, that is).
So, recently, I decided it was time to tidy up all the electrical spaghetti under my desk and try and make it look more organised (an interesting exercise!). I did also sort of wonder just what the underside of some other desks may look like as well. However, a nice bag of cable clips from maplin have made everything here look a lot tidier and much less of a safety hazard.
Then came the plugging everything back in. I never realised just how many power bricks and plugs I needed to run everything!
My main feed comes off one 13A wall socket and ends up with some extensions (all neatly mounted, out of the way, on a side wall of the desk). But when I counted the number of items plugged in, it came to a total of 13!
How many plugged in items have you got? And be honest, don't count the plugs going on the the next extension block!
7 but could do with 2 more as the modem in current use is a usb modem and the new one needs to be plugged into a socket and 1 more is needed for the radio/cd player so I can listen to football when I can't get to an away game.
Laptop, 2 external drives, printer, scanner, router, desk lamp, PoE midspan for a security camera I'm testing.
As for my work desk I couldn't begin to count the plugs I'm using, I currently have about 16 DVRs running, 30 odd cameras, a PC, monitor, 2 servers, 2 7.5tb direct attached storage boxes, 2 24 port switches and a 24 port PoE switch. No they're not all running from 1 13amp socket
