Bringing order to network chaos

New year – new resolutions. Time to finally bring some order to the various network gear, servers, tools, cables, computer parts, electronics components…….. stuff in general that is in more or less active use around here.

Let’s start with network switches. I only use a couple of these actively, so I should probably sell the rest… One thing at a time though – let’s document them first – never again will I have to dig up a switch to find out exactly what model it is or what firmware is on it.
