How it started vs how it's going, home networking edition.
@th I'm going through the same :) Those are some nice network cables! Which brand are they?
@rmsilva "MonoPrice SlimRun Cat6A patch cables" and they are amazing. The 30awg twisted pairs are so slender that they feel like fiber compared to normal UTP.
@th they look very practical. Where's the catch (other than not being suitable for PoE)?
@th exactly! At first I thought you had a bunch of fibers!
@s0 @th @rmsilva I’m plugging into a PoE calculator (using ≃100 Ω/100 ft from the datasheet) and if it is to be believed, you’d start to fall outside the 802.3af allowed specs (voltage drop, power at remote end) at cable runs > 35 m. This is much longer than I expected.
(Don’t get me wrong, it’s massively inefficient and you are losing hundreds of milliwatts in heat. But at least it won’t catch fire.)
@th Nice! Good job bundling all those cables. :)
