ziploc day [Aug. 8th, 2004|03:42 pm]

Today's clean the house today because it's too hot outside.

I went on a short bike ride, accomplished my mission (five thousand ziploc bags), and quickly returned.

So now I'm putting all my small stuff in ziploc bags because the zip-tie plan from the other month wasn't thought out that well.

See, I have about five thousand small parts and cables in a bunch of bins. But without ziploc bags, they all get tangled up and impossible to search through.

RFID could be useful here. Tag the ziploc bags with RFID tags, linked with pictures which I could lazilly meta-data at will. Then when I want something I get out my RFID reader and search for the proper room and bin.

But I digress. Back to baggying.

The worst are cables with RJ45 jacks on the ends. When you try to pull them out of the box the little plastic levers catch on other stuff and get snapped off and then your cable won't stay in the hole anymore. :(

Sounds like a personal problem there, dude.

(But really, I hate that too. The cables with snaps on the end to lock them in place.)
