As you can see in the photo on the left the cable clutter has gotten quite bad and some serious cable organization is needed.
One of the most interesting ways that I have seen suggested for organizing cable clutter is to actually use rain gutters to run the cables through. You attach the guttering to the back of the desk between the points that you need to run the cables and then the cables just sit in their.
A really cool feature of doing it like this is that if you have large enough guttering to use for to organize your cables you can even fit the power bricks and power strips into the guttering, assuming you have enough room between the desk and the wall to fit this sort of cable organization.
We don’t have enough room behind our desk for that sort of cable organizing, so instead I have some small cable clips taped under and behind the desk to organize the computer cables. I can run the cables through the clips, but I need to hide the power bricks between the desk legs and the wall. Two problems I have right now with this is that I have too many cables and the clips keep popping open, and the power brick for my wireless access point is too big to fit between the desk leg and the wall.
Tonight looks like it could be a bit of a frustrating one as I try to get these cables organized and hopefully out of sight.
