Re: Cable Colors
Very true. Another suggestion I will offer is that it is relatively inexpensive to order cables with pre-printed serial numbers.
I get them for about $0.20/cable more than I could buy in bulk and I get them in relatively low quantities. They cost about half of what buying a cable at Fry's would cost.
I use a format of XXXXXX-YY.Y where XXXXXX is a unique six digit number for the particular cable and YY.Y is the length of that particular cable.
Having these serial numbers triple-printed on self-laminating labels at each end of the cable makes them very easy to read and makes it very easy to be sure before you pull a cable that the A and Z ends are of the same cable, which, can also be a saving factor at 3AM.
