Just an FYI for all you folks considering stringing ethernet cables around your house: Cables have two ends. So the total number of connectors you need is the number of lines x 2. If you change plans in mid-stream, and decide to wire your cable ends in the wiring closet with female connections rather than male connections, this means you need twice as many female connectors as you originally bought.

So, in other news, I'm still not done wiring the new office for ethernet. I am trying a new vendor for my cat5e jacks. We'll see how the new vendor works out.
