I hate wires. I will be SO happy when we are free of them completely. And while I try to be great at cable management, inevitably it always turns into a birds nest behind my computer, entertainment center, and router. I’ve got a wireless transmitter for my projector so that I don’t have to have …

However during my penultimate semester I took a class where …
