I guess this falls under setup. I mentioned to my girlfriend that I wanted to removie all of my equipment and clean and ACTUALLY wire manage. She proposed an idea "let me do it". Do I trust her with this privilege? Counting both ends of all connectors I can think of about 100 connections that get made.

If you live together.... why not? It makes a nice platform for a nice trusting relationship (or great make-up sex). biggrin.gif

After she cleans your rack, maybe she'll let you clean hers.

Somebody told me it was frightening how much topsoil we are losing each year, but I told that story around the campfire and nobody got scared.

At 3.5 hours...everything has been removed and cleaned. She's in process of figuring out what goes to where. The FiOS gateway with a router and 8 port switch are giving her some hurdles but she's doing surprisingly well!

I'm surprised she didn't take digital pics of the cable connections before disconnecting. She could have used them as a reference to help make the re-connection process easier. She's a brave woman. And you're a brave man. eek.gif

Mourning the disappearing usage of the -ly suffix. Words being cut-off before they've had a chance to fully form, left incomplete, with their shoelaces untied and their zippers undone. If I quote your post (or post in your thread) without comment, please check your zipper.

I threw all the controllers and old Xbox there to make it look worse have. When she hooked all back up she consulted me on every connection to ensure it was correct so all was good. Thought there was s serious problem. Started watching iron man and at the beginning when his jeep gets blown up I had no sub :-0 so I bent overland turned it on but apparently pulled the - banana plug out and when I ran the scene back shorted it out lol. Quickly diagnosed and fixed tho :-p
