Kevin and Lisa

Inside Job

What with rain, sleet, and snow showers coming down here, it was not a day for field work. So Lisa worked inside her father's house, running a second CAT 5 cable from the dining room into his office so that both of the network slots are filled in the outlet in the dining area and she can have two internet connections even if I'm not here with my small hub. I pushed cables from the 60 feet of cable we'd purchased last week down the hole (and kept the cable from kinking), helped Lisa out of the crawl-space under the house, and acted as a third and fourth hand while she did the punch-downs on the cables. There were some wiring hiccups, but eventually she got everything working and now the dining room area is fully wired.
