I can't help you with network connections so much (it just makes me miss the office when our network jacks and power were above the desks -- the room had been a former machine room, and they kept the power high, and they didn't want to run the network across the AC)

But, I've kicked my share of power strips, and seen other people do the same, so I'll mention a trick that one of my former co-workers showed me:

Kick-proofing your power strip's on/off switch

  1. Obtain the lid from a Gatorade or similar sized lid (about 1.5"/4cm inner diameter).
  2. Using a box cutter or other utility knife, cut a rectangular hole in the top of the lid, large enough to get your finger through.
  3. Orient the rectangular hole over the rocker switch on the power strip, and secure with duct tape.
  4. Cut the duct tape away to expose the hole.

If you see no reason to ever turn off your power strip, then you only need steps 1 and 3, and no need to orient the lid.

[LanX]: It's not a perfect solution, since it means invoking the monastery several times, but IMHO still better than hosting on another server
[holli]: i'm surprised it even executes. the server sends text/plain AND a content-dispositio n header
[holli]: this really really should not be executed as Javascript
erix's head is getting content indisposed
[holli]: maybe try a GET instead?
[moritz]: I must say, when I was very active on perlmonks, I got really used to the markup and all the workflows
[moritz]: and then I didn't post for a while, and then tried to answer a question. It nearly drove me nuts
[moritz]: when you try to quote part of a question, you have to know/guess/reverse -engineer what kind of markup they used
[holli]: see? a/XpF4b
[moritz]: and stuff it into a <blockquote>...</ blockquote>, which is, like, not at all bulky
