Patch Cable

Anyone ever have to make this at home?

I decided that i wanted to run ethernet line throughout my home, and decided to make my own cable as well. What an experience- network cable has got to be the most finicky stuff I have ever worked with- but here I am, 4 hours later, and I've finally got the dumb cable working!

Just felt the need to share.

Ever try to make a DB-25 to Centronics connector cable using 50-wire telephone cable - and every connection had to be hand soldered, and the cable ends were about 50-feet apart?
