Horrible way to fix a cable run




Horrible way to fix a cable run

Originally uploaded by Declan!

I have a task at work to get a vendor to remove the telecommunication cabling from a floor we are giving back to the landlord. As were were doing the walk-through I came across the quality work done by a vendor many years ago.

Looks like they accidentally cut one of the cable runs, and decided to do a ghetto fix instead of running a new cable….what freaking crap!

I have a Rendezvous with Death

I have a rendezvous with Death
At some disputed barricade,
When Spring comes back with rustling shade
And apple-blossoms fill the air—
I have a rendezvous with Death
When Spring brings back blue days and fair.

It may be he shall take my hand
And lead me into his dark land
And close my eyes and quench my breath—
It may be I shall pass him still.
I have a rendezvous with Death
On some scarred slope of battered hill,
When Spring comes round again this year
And the first meadow-flowers appear.

God knows ’twere better to be deep
Pillowed in silk and scented down,
Where love throbs out in blissful sleep,
Pulse nigh to pulse, and breath to breath,
Where hushed awakenings are dear . . .
But I’ve a rendezvous with Death

At midnight in some flaming town,
When Spring trips north again this year,
And I to my pledged word am true,
I shall not fail that rendezvous.

I also like how Gears of War 2 tied it into their Trailer:

Harder, Better, Faster, Stronger

Today I ran 3 miles at 8 minutes, 18 seconds per mile. Then I crashed the final last mile to have an 12 minutes per mile average. Hopefully I’ll be ready for the 10K next weekend!
