Continuing from the Organizing Your Workspace post, today I try to reduce and clean up those horrid cables under the table. Its always been like this down there and I only just recently managed to clean it up a bit during the end-of-year big clean out.
When will we start to get wireless electricity?
If you got a tangle of wires like this, always make sure to keep them free of dust because dust can actually lead to fires.
What happens is that the dust that gathers around electrical points absorb moisture in the air and when that comes into contact with an electrical flow then something bad happens.
Scroll down a bit on this page to see a photo of what happened when a mound of dust caused a fire. Over 1000 accidents with fire are said to be caused by dust like this in Japan every year.
Charging stations for batteries help save time - the eneloop charger enables me to charge 12 batteries at once - in TV production I need at least 8 for the wireless mics for a days shoot - 4 for standby. The regular charger that only charges 4 means that I waste time waiting to replace/charge.
