Rock out with your cords out tucked quietly away

Sometimes I think "why doesn't somebody make X?" then I look on Amazon and it's there. Short, grounded extension cords with a flat head? Yeah, got it.

Woo! Flat headed cords! Woo!

And why do I need this? Ok, if you must know.

The wiring in my place is on the outside of the walls. The old wiring from the 60s was apparently not user replaceable. Now we know where Apple got it from.

At any rate, the outlets are properly grounded so they won't catch the place on fire. This is more than can be said for my last building; I shouldn't complain. But I will.

That's a lot of look

You see, the outlets stick out from the wall a couple inches. Then the big, chunky power strip cords that I insist on plugging in stick out another couple inches. It's like I've got { padding: 6in; }* in my style sheet.

Well no more. I'm one fed-ex delivery away from having my wiring situation sorted. Rock!

* CSS jokes? Really? I've got to get out more.
