A quick fix
When we have a lot of cables attached to our computers, we might use a clip to nail them all together and keep then intact. We don’t want cables everywhere, covering our desk and getting swirled together, as if they were headphones in a pocket, right? Nobody wants that. But what happens when your clip is broken? This person improvised a quick fix.
Only, they probably didn’t give it much thought. Clearly, putting a thumbtack inside a cable, well, we’re not sure what exactly it does, but it can’t be good. Whatever this cable’s used for, it probably shouldn’t have tiny holes in it. We can see why one might want to nail all these nagging cables to a desk, but again, there must be a better solution.
