Re: "in case the labels caused confusion"
Re cables, I just had several rolls of different electrical tape and a chart stating what each colour was. We didn't have a label machine so the tape was the next best thing. One of the best presents I was given many years ago was a LapLink cable and the whole thing was coloured yellow. It was easier to locate than even the tape coloured one.
Didn't know the University of Woolloomooloo had an engineering department
Is it staffed by guys called Bruce?
