    Hi all, I am looking for some ideas as to how I can best manage all my power cables.

    Basically I have a room with 2 PCs, 3 TFTs, external hard drives, routers, UPS, phone docking stations et.c etc. etc. and the power cable requirement is rediculous. I am running with several trailing extension cords, whilst safe from an ampage perspective (ampage - is there such a word? :) ) I would still like a better way of managing my power supply requirements.

    I have only 2 single power sockets in the room and I guess I should have a lot more.

    I'd love to know if people have found 3rd party solutions to this issue or any ideas at all.

    I am in the UK.

    Might be a good idea to call in an electrician to check it out. But you can always come off the original outlet and put in another(keeping in mind the amperage) He or she could do that for both. Or could single out the wires to that room and put them on a single breaker and increase the power supply(amperage) to them.
    Good luck!

    Well, this office has my workbench and five computers, three printers, and seven monitors, LCD and CRT. The three room office suite also has it's own 100A service. :)

    I'd think you might want to run a bit more power...
