Tip & How-To about Computers & Internet
After spending 24 years in the military and moving every year or two, I got tired of looking for my stereo manuals to find out where to hook all the cables. Then one day, I noticed my wife and daughter had accumulated an awesome supply of nail polish and the idea light went off in my head.
I got several different colors of nail polish together; went to the back of the electronic cabinet and put a dab of polish above the connectors (both ends) and the same color on the cables (both ends). When I ran out of different colors I just started doing a double dab on both sides.
The next time I had to move, I had absolutely no trouble hooking everything up and getting operational!
Now when I pass a cosmetics counter, I ask the clerk if they have any samples that I could have. This trick works on most anything, even when I disconnect electrical cables on my vehicles, I mark each side with nail polish and never have to wonder if I got it connected to the right place.
