You tug at cables and fend off snags and giant power bricks, making the knots worse and worse. You finally emerge with a fistful of cable, victorious, only to find that you actually needed a different one.
I have no less than four boxes overflowing with cables, adapters, hubs, game controllers, etc. These items are not yet ready for the trash and still need to be used on an infrequent basis. What organization systems do the gadget junkies of Slashdot have in place to easily store and access their peripheral paraphernalia?
