[TriLUG] Labelling conventions...

Make one up.
In my last company, the actual cables weren't labeled (gasp!) but
sockets were all labeled based on patch-bay position. Such as A-1,
If you don't like single-digit cable labels, you can always add
extraneous extra digits that don't really mean anything. I've been
known to do that as well.
Or make up a room numbering system. Then you could have 102-10, 102-11,
etc.. (<room #>-<cable #>)
Basically imagine what you think would look cool and make up a system to
look like that. :-D

Subject: [TriLUG] Labelling conventions...
So, we're finally upgrading/refreshing/ripping-out-and-replacing our
network here at $COMPANY.
I have inherited a rat's nest network, wires completely unlabeled, no
wire management... it's crazy.
So I'm working to make things better...
However, the thing that's giving me fits... labeling the wires. I don't
want to just label them 1, 2, 3, 4, and I also don't really want to
label them "Jim's PC" "Mary's PC" etc... (This is how several labels
here are currently, which is really handy as there hasn't been a Mary in
that building for 5 years now... )
So I was wondering what you network admins out there might do... Or any
good websites on the subject... My Google-fu is weak at the moment.
