David Looking at Things: ethernet cable
In this series, I take a look at things that usually get hardly any attention. Today’s edition: an ethernet cable with a name I don’t know.
I own an ethernet cable. Boring. The cable’s yellow. This doesn’t make it more interesting, only uglier if that. It’s also flat. This might be a helpful feature in a server room. In my apartment, however, the only thing it might do is make me tell jokes that fall flat. Let me tell you one:
What’s yellow, flat and can’t swim? A squashed excavator yellow ethernet cable.
I did, of course, check to see if this was actually true, after all, jokes aren’t a laughing matter. The answer? Yes, it’s true.
No, you can’t purchase this cable here. No, I’m not trying to sell you a cable. No, this isn’t covert advertising. No, customers don’t have the right to return jokes that don’t meet their expectations.
Other than that, there’s not much left to say. It’s a cable. It transmits data. Even now, after it’s had a bath. It isn’t IP7X certified. If that were the case, it would have to be fully functional under water. But it’s not, because I can’t hook it up when it’s in a water container. Right, I think I’ve said more than enough. See ya!
