Not everything that I patch is covered by wireless technologies, and when
it is I often prefer the wired approach anyway.
My house PBX has system phone extensions that have to be wired.
My ISDN BRI circuits also need to be wired.
Eircom do all their circuit deliver to the garage, and I
take it from there to wherever it is needed.

Ah, but you can always look at it the other way round - they
get to listen to your music collection.
Anyway - just because it *can* be wired, doesn't mean that
it is always wired.
One room ( currently office ) is shortly to be rekitted out
as kids room - the office is moving - and for a period it will
be nomadic... having the ability to do that without trip hazards
everywhere is handy.

Isn't that the job of a restraining order ?
