Just received this photo from a very proud first time network engineer.
@ajroach42 Please don't mock the newbies. The picture itself will make them cringe a few years from now 🤭
@yuki :-D he has no intention of ever doing anything like this again, and completed the brief of "get the other building networked and fix the TV"
@dmoonfire Frankly, me too. He's a rank amateur and I'm a professional. This is surprisingly competent considering his background.
@ajroach42 Legitimately thought his arm was zip-tied to the rack in the second photo, hence the pose. It's... not what you want for long-term use, but for a first try it ain't *terrible*.
@ajroach42 I've seen lots worse. And at the very least, that instrumentation rack is actually bolted to the wall and won't fall on anyone. It does have at least 1 patch minder too, so at least the cables can be cleaned up without too much stuff being rearranged.
