    mmmmmmmm new server is getting installed today
    so exciting

    so our electrician fucked up some more stuff
    first problem was when we first got here
    the wires were hooked up reversed
    one end was 1-8
    the other end was 8-1
    no network communication
    i was losing my mind
    so thats all fixed now
    but new problem...
    we're getting a 1 gig 24 port switch
    cat 6 wire with cat 5 ends
    will not push 1 gig speeds
    and the terminations are messy, pairs untwisted, too much wire showing etc

    IT guys are just baffled how this guy could mess it up this bad

    doesnt matter. if i was there i would be looming over ANYONE touching or near my equipment. no room for error when you need 100% uptime.

    electricians shouldn't be touching cat-x cable at all. there's like 1 mili volt running through it...

    some electricians also have thier low-voltage license which would cover install of cat-x cables
