I have just built myself another, long, 'desk' to put all of my gear/telephones on so that it is not crammed. While I was disassembling everything, *gets very embarrassed here*, I noticed that I had 3 power-plug boards each with 6 sockets, daisy-chained off each other. As I had acquired the stuff and ran out of sockets, I had just sort of added the necessary expansion. And, probably worse, when I put everything back onto the new desk just now, I repeated the same assembly. Potential danger or what? In order, the items are: Bose hi-fi (I mention Bose because I am so proud of it ) Digital TV box TV DVD player Desk light Video/Audio recorder HDD recorder Broadband modem DECT telephone PowerMac G4 External DVD burner External HDD Not everything is ever turned on at once and, when everything calms down in my head, I might try and work out the total load that could get drawn from that one single power socket if it were. And the spaghetti of the wires at behind the desk is pretty wondrous too. Am I the only one to go down this route?
