    Maybe they didn't have the instructions...

    No, they didn't have the suitable cable cover for the job... 9 cables and a 5 cable trough... but they did have lots of tape... and tape is like chocolate frosting... you can cover-up just about any disaster with a thick enough application.



    There are alternatives (if the duct tape compromise solution fails in practice):

      Is it the fault of the bridge that the river is now too wide? (Astute observation, Mark, as to the number of cable vs. the number of channels.) Great photo, though. I think I've worked with that show's crew, BTW. Mark C.

        Wow, failure to use the proper tool for the job. Close enough is exactly what the lawyer hopes to hear

          I had never seen a "bridge" like that though - I mean - if it would happen to be the right size - it would be awesome! I "hate" cables - out where people walk - but it happens a lot.

              A good example of making a problem worse with an inadequate solutuion. Seen it several times myself...

                Ain't that the truth.
                Some write songs for themselves and some write songs for other people. Both get the audience they asked for.
