WTH? Must-see photos

Cabling photos from some ugly telecom closets

Grant Richards is a certified IT/telecommunications contractor and course instructor with the Limited Energy Apprenticeship Program at Oregon’s Clackamas Community College. He sent us these captioned cabling photos that may make you say, “Hmmmmm,” writing, “As a low-volt contractor and apprenticeship instructor, I’ve come across a lot of ugly situations. Here are a few. I took all of these on job sites.”

Thanks Grant!

When I teach my code class I’ll show the students a picture and ask them to identify the violation. Good fun because there are often multiple issues. WTH?
