    well, it starts out small and neat looking like mine there, then you need to expand, so you start dumping more lines in until there's a bazillion wires going everywhich way.... this is of course before the hubs/switches/routers have been added, so its clean looking still. each one of those ports will be connected to a port on a hub/switchto get everything interconnected properly.

    as for few PC's, we've got about 70 PC's, 9 network pritners, and 6 servers. we're not a huge company yet, but I've got expansion built in already... the rack pictured is 1 of 3 racks in the building, with the other 2 being smaller boxes hanging from a cieling in the engineering wing, and one hanging on a pole out in the machine shop... total, I've got 170 ports punched down right now, and with exception of everyone moving in and tehn trying to tell me they `want the port on the other side of the room' or `can you run 3 more so I can run my laptops, and this and that too?' I think I have it pretty much outfitted for the next 2 years or so. by then, no one will be using cat5e, and it'll have to all come out anyway....

    oh well,
