I've just had to delve at the back of my desk to attach a cable to the line in of the sound board and I'm amazed at the amount of cables and connections I've accumulated.

It's the equivalent of Bruce Buckmans desk (see PC World) !

Anyone got any pet ways of keeping theirs neat and tidy?

Reusable cable ties plus a few hooks below the desktop (hardware not software) work for me. I have a virtual forest of cables.

Cheers

If you use reusable ties you always get it right first time.
If you use permanent ties (the sort you have to cut off)
you will always have to change something two minutes
after you crawl out from under your desk.:D

Taken note of your comment about reusable ties!!!

Reusable ties are good, but you can buy a reel of "bag tie" very cheaply in the Warehouse gardening section.

You will note the effects of the laws of thermodynamics: All those cables were installed one by one, from point to point, and appeared orderly. Now, with no human intervention, they are thoroughly tangled. ;-)

That is a great tip Billy, the mess of cables from two PC's plus the plethora of peripheral components cables is awful behind my desks.

Very true! :D
