Managing Decay

I joke with my wife that one of the main activities of life is managing decay. When Adam sinned, God responded with a promise of death and decay until the final redemption. While we see it most vividly in the aging of our bodies ending in death, I also notice the curse in my kitchen sink, my daughter's play area, and our tech team's storage areas. Didn't we just clean this up?

Every three months or so, our tech teams do a Work Day. It is a day devoted to decay, or the management of it. We clean, organize, fix, label, clean some more, tie wrap, cable wrap, clean some more, and then clean up from our cleaning. Here are some pictures...

We built a music stand cart last work day. Unfortunately, some ideas don't work out. Hey, Philip, can you take this apart?




Len, the soccer coach, and Bob, the gymnast...




Elise behind her newly organized shelves...




Justin, where's your prop?




Cable racks were the big project for the day.




And a little of the fruit from our labor...

Managing Decay! I like that! throws in another perspective when I'm recycling too!

Just a quick question, what are you guys using to check your cables. I am shopping for testing equipment right now. Have you got some favorites?

Thanks!

Brent,

Honestly, we are just using a bunch of test equipment we've collected over the years. For testing cables, I think ProCo and Whirlwind have decent testers with plenty of input and output options.

Cool, I will check into both!
