A Cat or cable

february 8 2008

Sometimes it's fun, sometimes it's not, and sometimes it's just a matter of knowledge.

My son with asperger syndrome knows a lot of computers and electronics.
That comes in handy, because he can fix a lot.

He's often asked by people to help them out, which sometimes results in a call for his brother to get something he needs in a shop nearby.

One of the girls in his house is moving, and she's worrying a lot about her cat. She's afraid he won't get used to the new house.
We had a talk about that yesterday.

An hour later he called.
Mom, I need a Cat 5 cable. Can you or someone else get one and bring it here?

"Do you need a special length?", I asked. Thinking that a leash for the cat was wanted.
"Good question, I'll call you back."

During the next call I landed on my feet: it's a special kind of network cable. LOL!
