I really don't want to bureaucratize this, but how has it been decided what subset of our inventory is for sale? - Katie 19:25, 29 July 2008 (UTC)

We don't need hookup wire!
TC, you might not have noticed that, on my last visit, I brought down two sizable hanks of telco wire. One bunch is 24AWG, one bunch is 22AWG. It's all multipair, twisted to cat-3 spec (so it's easy to untwist), tinned copper, with color-coded jackets following the modern telco scheme. I think there's around a dozen feet of each, which multiplied by the number of pairs in the jacket, works out to many hundreds of feet of wire. The bulk of it is stored on the floor in a heavy triwall corrugated box labeled "WIRE", and there are some smaller bits pulled out of the outer jacket, sitting in the small plastic shoebox behind the door, also labeled "WIRE".
