[EMS Discuss] Bad News, Good News

Bad news: The long orange extension cord at our space has a loose
connector at the female end. Plugs fall out and connectivity is
intermittent. If we keep using it, it may start a fire.
Good news: I got us a brand new 14 AWG yellow cord tonight. It is
only 25 feet, but that's more than plenty to reach into the wood shop
So if you see a thick yellow snake on the floor, don't panic! You
haven't fallen into a time warp and come out in 1988 next to a 10 Mbps
Thick Ethernet cable -- it's just the new extension cord.
I did not destroy the bad extension cord -- if it were mine, I'd cut
the plugs off so it doesn't get a chance to start a file. But it's
not mine. So I put it on a shelf.
