Re: Cable Nazis... Grab a tissue

with random cables going every direction there is less distance between them which means less of a chance for crosstalk.

when the cables are laying on top of e/o and touching, it allows for a greater chance of crosstalk

that is how i read that post.

I think that's a lazy excuse because the installers are generally lazy.

The last job I worked in the field on, the data comm guys stopped and watched me several times while I laced. They never had seen it before. The electricians had seen it only in black and white photos while in trade schools. There was one hvac guy who had been around the block a few times in his days and he knew exactly what it was. He commented how good it was to see someone who still did that sort of work and it had been over 20 years since he'd seen it done.

There are a few of us who still do it. It is seriously time consuming but when your cabling has to be perfect, it's the only way.
