Geek happiness

One of the things coming out of preparing to move in July is a little bit of a technology refresh.  Knowing that I’m going to be pulling apart our network, AV setup, etc, and then putting it back together in a new place has been a great motivator to do some updating.

In related news, Newegg had 8-port gigabit ethernet switches on sale for 25 bucks and turn out to stock a wide range of cat 6 cable in all lengths and hues, and, well, that’s the sort of combination that rather encourages one to swap out some old hubs and wiring with an eye to the future.

We don’t, to be honest, have that many gigabit devices, but everything that can run at that speed now does, and it is a glorious thing to watch files whip across the network at that kind of speed.
