Danger! Bogon levels exceeding threshold! [Aug. 3rd, 2005|03:14 pm]
You know how some days are "Spare the air" days? Today is also a "Spare the stupidity" day. Please, people, leave some stupidity for tomorrow!

Yeah, I know. It's not like stupidity is limited or anything.

Reasons to not use the low bidder (first in a series) Reason #1 to not use the low bidder

The low bidder is such because they don't know what they are doing.

-one cable per jack, please
-don't use zip ties to hold said jack together
-a service loop would be nice
-please maintain pair twist to termination point
-pvc jacketing should be flush with jack
-label new cables
-data jacks are not like phone jacks, goddammit!

This is classic. Looks like someone's going to be rewiring.

I still haven't gotten around to wiring my house. There are some ducts in the way that I can't get past under the house, so I'm waiting on the guy who is going to be putting in our gas lines so I can do it at the same time as him.

Wow Bill,
You just made me feel much better about my day(night) at work. Somehow I thought I was just having a crappy night screwing things up... until I randomly saw this before going to bed. Now I'm analyzing it trying to figure out how many compounded mistakes it took for things to get like this. Very nice. Looks like something my boss would do. For reference, said boss is always the lowest bidder ;)

Can I get their number? I need to set up some wiring in my lab, and if I'm gonna have to pay for it, I want to at least get a laugh out of it while someone else is doing it.

I can just see it now: "Patch panel? What are those? We just run the wires down from the ceiling and slap an end onto them and plug them in."
