I really get off on doing that sort of stuff, running cables. Every once in a while, as tech changes, I find myself offloading unnecessary equipment and piling HDMI/ethernet/USB cables all in a pile. Got so many now it's pathetic.
Wish I knew how to tell what HMDI cable has what kinda capabilities, though.
 
I've got to do some serious work on this.  It is that time of the year to take the towers out to the front porch and blast them with canned air.  That's the easy part, hooking them back up is the bitch.  Not that I don't know what goes where, its just that presently everything is buried under one year's accumulation of stuff on top of them that has to be dealt with, too ...

7 + terabytes overall.  My primary vinyl ripping partition is 1.25 TB and it was down to 3.2 GB.  Now it is back up to about 40 GB for now.

Have a 2 TB Western Digital Black HDD sitting to swap out with a 1 TB and pick up another full TB.  Living dangerously as at least 2 of the 5 existing drives are over 10 years old now.

WD Black or nothing ...

Did have to make room for new arrivals this month.

Country Life and Stranded from a preorder I forgot about showed up Saturday.

A week ago I picked up Brewer / Shipley ~ Weeds which has Witchie Tai To on it.  BOC's first and a clean copy of Cheap Thrills.

Sometime next week Porcupine Tree's new set comes.  I've got 2  box sets on 45 RPM and a standard 33 1/3 black vinyl copy coming.  I expect to make some money on the 45's down the road after they are sold out.

I hear you; stairs are becoming my most dreaded enemies.
When I was young I could run you into the ground, but because of the past 2 years of not going out much and doing very little has contributed to my muscle loss. When I was young I would bike everywhere, play hockey for hours on end or play basketball from early morning to when the sun went down. I could flex my thigh muscles  and split my jeans too.  

Guess that’s why my knees are now getting kind of wonky.

I was beat and had to sit 3 times, which was surprising since I normally can cut my small lawn in one shot. Getting old sucks!

When or if you go for knees... ask for Zimmer Persona.
Zimmer knows the knees. And they are built with the best and latest tech in the plastic insert that should last over 30 years or more.
Doctors will never tell you what knee they use. Usually it's the one they can get the most profit/ freebies (payola) off of. Don't go for the gimmicks either.
All this hype out there in the last few years about computer measurement/ satellite technology is a big gimmick.
Those systems use a old Stryker knee, that Syryker has moved on since about 4 new revisions past.
When I went in for surgery, the Zimmer rep already knew what size he needed to bring by just looking at me. And he brought 4 sizes each way just in case he was a little off.
 
Good info. Thanks Kurt! {#Good-vibes}
