Is just removing plug on your target machine too difficult?

I've seen quite a few situations where unplugging a network
or other cable required acrobatic skills.

Mostly for me, that's the easy part. It's the untangling part that
generally wreaks havoc on an otherwise placid system.

I can't reach behind my machine(s). In effect, my keyboard and monitor are molded into a virtual wall. Something died back there, and I could either learn to live with the smell until it dried out and stopped smelling or disassemble a lot of stuff, including the network, 150 feet of other cable (the ends of which were unknown), furniture-analogs and an LP record collection. It might have been in the real wall. Who knew?

Took about 3 weeks. Less than one can of Febreze. And the flies were really stupid and slow and easy to swat.

Cheers, Bev
