I have been working on a modestly large network cabling job the last few days. Usually for the larger jobs I just buy the wire I am going to need, and for the smaller jobs I use the wire I have on the shelf. Well, things haven't been that busy for network cable jobs, and I decided to go through the shelves and see what I had in partial boxes. Turns out I had more than enough for the job. I have Cat 5e cable from a range of years, distributors, and manufacturers. Some of them aren't even in business anymore. Seems in this business I have outlasted a lot of distributors. I think I'm going to go in the house and pour myself a cold one in my King Alarm beer mug. Now if I only had an Arius shot glass I'ld toast my luck and survival with a boiler maker. LOL.
