Well, as long as the data is starting and stopping at the same place, it doesn't matter too much. Just double check the heads and make sure they aren't different. :)

Not all of us are living in a 802.11 world yet. I still run wires around my house and have to crimp new ones occasionally.

Ahh, I didn't mean that having a wired network was high school. I meant that crimping your own cables reminded me of high school. I remember days where we'd spend hours in the networking room making cables. It was boring as all hell. Then we had to use the little LAN CAT tool to test them.

And, for my money, wireless isn't all it's cracked up to be. It can be convenient in certain cases, but it can be a pain in the ass to get your whole house set up on wireless.

Well, I definitely learned how to do that in high school. I like having the tools for crimping wires because buying the wire itself uncrimped is so much cheaper than buying premade wires, it's crazy.

What are you doing that requires making cables? I've never had to do that.

Home networking. My dad is trying to do something where he needed a new 50 foot cable, so I made him one.

I have a pretty good one that I bought for like $25. I never bought a spool of wire, though. I can buy the wire at the local hardware store for like 8 cents a foot though.
