    I have so MANY damned wires running behind my computer desk, it's unbeleivable. Lets see...

    Computer. VGA Connector from DVD to TVTuner card. Computer Plug. Montior plug into computer. Speaker plug. Two wires connecting speakers together. Speaker Plug. Cable from VCR to TV Tuner. Telephone Wire for modem.

    Electronics: Two VCR wires. 1 Dubbing cable(2Audio/1Video). Stereo, with one cable from headphone out to VCR audio for radio show taping. Two cable wires going to two VCR's. One cable wire from cable source. One Nintendo Gamecube. One plug, one controller, one AVOUT wire. That's got to be at least ten, including one speaker for the stereo, and the mouse/keyboard...

    Is there anything made wireless so i can get rid of some of this stuff? I plan on picking up a wireless control for the gamecube, and one wireless Keyboard/Mouse. But what else do they make that can make up for the mess of wires behind my desk?

    Thanks!

    Some wireless stuff is not truly wireless. For instance, wireless keyboards/mice might use IR transmitters/receivers where the receiver is a box sitting on your desk and connected to your PC with a wire. If the mess of wire is getting to you, just use velcro wire ties or split-loom tubing to bundle the wires.
