i like organizing my cables. or rather, i hate have a tangled mess of cables, so i organize them. cable ties, food bag ties, velcro ties, they're all great. but what they don't do is let you identify them easily. and then i came across label the cable.
they have many different varieties, in all kinds of shapes, lengths and colours. and they're not too expensive either: €8.99 for a pack of five. if you're a neat freak geek too, check out the website.
