Some times people ask me the difference between hiring me and an electrician or someone else to run cables for telephone and networking stuff... The below pictures speak for themselves... This is half way done.

This client had a scattering of rat nests and band aids which grew with each new computer they bought. Troubleshooting a problem in this mess took much longer than it ever should. Having a bunch of rat nests can likely cause problems in the future as cables get yanked and moved around. There are really so many potential problems with messy cables that doesn't even start to address the esthetic angle.

Additionally, I can promise you, it is much more time consuming. (expensive) to hire me after the fact than bringing me in at the start. Plus, you've paid two people to do the job... You're starting off in a negative position.

What is the correct way? The ideal process for a medium scale project like this is to call me first..

Phase 1
Day one, I will bring my electrician, or meet yours. We will discuss technical details of what needs to be done with each other, and discuss how you plan to use your new network with you.

I will advise you on what cabling may be best with your specific business and usage. He will advise on building codes as well as potential problem areas in your attic, crawl space or walls that may lead to complications and additional work.

Phase 2
The electrician will come alone or with his assistant and will run cable. We will work closely and discuss potential complications as they come up. When he finishes, the correct cables will be in the correct locations, with a fair amount of extra "slack".they will not have plugs, and will not be usable yet.

Phase 3
I will come by myself or with a assistant. We will cut the cables to length, crimp on jacks, set up patch panels and equipment racks and shelving as needed.

What you end up with is a solid network that requires little maintenance have limited if any issues and will continue to purr for years to come!!

Some of you may have heard me say "I'm not rich enough to be cheap" I'm not sure where the origins of that are, but I believe it emphatically. I live by it. Here's one example.

Also, can someone explain to me why people are surprised by things that happen, exactly as predicted by the expert they hired?

I had a customer take their computer to the "competition, " because it was "free" and covered under warranty. The customer was warned ahead of time that warranties are a pain in the ass and cause more problems than they are worth.

Original problem: keys on keyboard missing...

They just got it back, today... The customer suffered on a very slow computer for the two weeks. Warranty team formatted the system before replacing the keyboard... Because... We all know Windows can cause keys to pop off of your keyboard!!

In the end, it's going to cost the customer the same, if not more, to recover the missing data from backups, re optimize everything that they JUST paid me to do a few months ago.

Luckily for them, they DID hire me to set up an always on backup of their system.

Everybody repeat after me... I am not rich enough to be cheap! +Advanced Millennium Computers +Entrepreneur Social Club

Hey, +Chris Jenkins, tell some of your google devs on your friend's lists that google play music should allow WAY more than 1000 songs in a playlist. The genre function is useful, but I like creating sub genre playlists, such as east coast, west coast, dirty south, atl, or midwest. WIth the all access pass, that 1000 song limit is QUICKLY passed

Hey, +Chris Jenkins and +Michael Scott Novilla  how do you tell g+ that you have one friend who has google glass, one who does weddings, but you don't want 45 community suggestions related to only those two things?

Even funnier with a tub full of water... on a completely unrelated note... Does anyone have a spare cat, laser pointer, and video camera I can borrow?
