The year is 1957. The world is being taken storm by a wave of new technology. The first artificial satellite Sputnik 1 was launched and Elvis Presley's Jailhouse Rock was holding the number one spot on music charts around the world. All of this happened, of course, long before I was born.
Along with these exciting historical events, a small home was built in Stoney Creek, Ontario. My parents have recently purchased this home with the intention to renovate it into the 21st century.

|The Cat6 and RG6 lines departing from the electrical panel. Looks good :]|
Thankfully this home has an unfinished basement. We are finishing it with a drop ceiling which allows me to staple cables onto the bottom surface of the floor joists. I started out with a good stapler and round "cable staples". The regular rectangular staples have a bad tendency of crushing cables.
