From the submitter:
I hated when my power went down for a second and my internet connection was gone.
My broadband got changed from 10Mbit to 100Mbit and my cheap routers kept burning up.
The definition of tidiness in IT! The white boxes are DSL routers, hanging on their own power cord. Meanwhile, the power strip hangs on for dear life at the bottom.
It also stops those freeloading UFOs from jacking your WiFi.
Just remember your network key.
What? Who cares if it's straight? Does the duct tape mess with the room's feng shui or something?
It's not his fault you chose the cheapest internet service that loses connectivity every 45 minutes.
